How are you using literary nonfiction?

I’d like to hear from English teachers, particularly those who teach grades 7-12 and dual-credit courses about how their schools are using literary fiction in their academic programs.
If you have experience using literary nonfiction in English class, or if you work in a school where other departments have taken the lead in using literary nonfiction, I’d love to hear about your experiences.
