Summary/Abstract: The article deals with the use of non-fiction literature in secondary school lessons. In addition to Polish language and literature lessons; I see the possibility and also the need to using the genre described here during class in other subjects; showing the dominant role of humanities as a field that combines competences in literature theory; geography; knowledge about society and history; among other areas. In the first part of the article; I provide reflection on the characteristics of the genre; which; in my opinion; can cause a greater reading activity of pupils and involve them in the community of readers. In the second part; I propose readings of specific reports on ecological problems in the spirit of ecodidactics: Plutopia. Atomowe miasta i nieznane katastrofy nuklearne [Plutopia. Nuclear Families; Atomic Cities; and the Great Soviet and American Plutonium Disasters] by Kate Brown; Czarnobylska modlitwa. Kronika przyszłości [Chernobyl Prayer. A Chronicle of the Future] by Svetlana Alexievich; Miedzianka. Historia znikania [History of a Disappearance. The Story of a Forgotten Polish Town] by Filip Springer.
