Genre Concept Posters
Students can use these concept posters to demonstrate their understanding of the different reading genres:
• realistic fiction
• science fiction
• informational text
• traditional literature
There are individual posters for each element, as well as a blank one that you can add your own questions to (the blank one is not an editable file, so you will have to hand write your own questions in). The posters can be used as an assessment for learning (as a diagnostic activity to see what knowledge your students are bringing to a concept), assessment as learning (as a formative assessment during a unit or as a review before the end of a unit), or as assessment of learning (as a summative task at the end of a unit).
Teachers could have all students complete the same poster, or have students create different posters to create a concept wall full of visually appealing posters.
These posters make a GREAT sub day activity, needing little to no prep for you or the sub. They would also make a great addition to your writing or reading journals or notebooks.
Posters are in black and white and are easy to reproduce. Students are expected to add visual appeal to the posters by adding color and creativity. Posters are created in 8.5 x 11 size, but can be enlarged on the photocopier to print at 11 x 17 size.
A rubric is also included for summative or formative assessment. I have also made a student self-reflection checklist for students to use prior to handing in their posters.
Completed posters will make a fabulous bulletin board display
that both students and teachers will be proud of!
