    Purpose of Unit

    We created these two units because materials that teach the skill of identifying genres thoroughly are difficult to find. Most materials rush the process, but identifying genres takes time and lots of practice. Our goal was to allow the students time to work with the different genres so that they truly would know the specific characteristics of each genre. This knowledge will help them predict patterns when they read different stories and increase their comprehension and assist in their narrative writing.

    Each Individual Genre Unit Includes:

    - 8 very detailed lesson plans with learning goals, learning targets

    - 8 formative assessments for each lesson

    - 8 accompanied PowerPoints to guide the teaching and engage the students

    - Samples for assessments and tasks

    - “I Can” Statements

    - Learning Scales and Student Tracking Sheet based on Marzano’s Learning Scales

    - 1 summative assessment

    - 1 Writing Craftivity

    - Classroom Genre Posters

    We broke down the learning goal of “Identifying genres by analyzing the setting, events and characters” into digestible lessons. This unit will easily last 3 weeks if not more, but when the students are finished, they will be able to identify genres throughout their lives.
