The first page of this handout provides students with a description of the various fiction genres. On the second page is a table which asks students to identify popular books/films' genres. Based on these examples, the students then choose their three favorite genres. This is a great activity to do before the kids pick their own books to read.
I have been teaching high school English and Physical Education for six years in British Columbia, Canada. I have attended numerous professional development conferences in both subjects over the years. I have a huge interest in resource development.
