A little about why we love to share our resources with other amazing teachers like you:
We fell in love with teaching through genre many years ago. Through researching best practices, learning from other Reading Gurus, a little trial and error, a tweak here and there, we designed a formula that we have used in our own classrooms for many years.
Our students love our lessons and activities, and we can say without a doubt that our students leave our classrooms with confidence and a deep level of understanding genre.
Your students can do the same, all you have to do is grab this resource and then you will be equipped to make your students Genre Experts!
