By graduation in 2014, 70 percent of books studied should be nonfiction, but this includes content areas as well. If students are reading a lot of non-fiction text in science and social studies, you can focus a little more on fiction. In grade 7, I tried to do close to 50% non-fiction, knowing that the geography and science teacher taught a lot of non-fiction, which allowed students to read 70% non-fiction throughout the day. Talk to the teachers on your team to see what text they are using with kids and this will help you to determine what you need to provide to students.
Hope this helps,
