PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

T'each His Own is pleased to offer the "Create Your Own Genre" activity. This activity can be completed in a group or individually. Students must have access to the internet in order to complete this activity. Students should have previous experience identifying different fiction and non-fiction genres before completing this activity.

I teach a Cambridge level course called AICE English Language to 11th graders at my school. The end of course assessment requires students to analyze the style and language of a sample text. This task requires students to have a firm knowledge of genre. Students are not only asked to identify the genre of a text, but to relate the author's purpose and audience to the given genre.

This activity provides a succinct way to move students past genre identification towards genre creation, with the goal being to help students become engaged with the different language- specifically keywords - present in each genre.

Teachers should feel free to attach a list of internet resources such as blogs, editorials, news sources, etc. for students to use as a starting point, or to simply leave the exploratory component of the activity up to students.
