This unit introduces genres that are named in the Common Core Standards. Notes and activities can be used in a Reader’s Notebook or setting up a Reader’s Workshop with each genre being a mini-lesson. A blank copy of notes and activities are provided, as well as an answer key that can be projected on an over head or with a document camera for easy student use.
Two options for quizzing for mastery, as well as two options for continuing genre study throughout the year are included.
Classes that do not have a large working library may want to touch base with their librarian or media specialist and ask for resources to help provide examples for the students to use throughout the unit. Included within this product are also sample stories of some genres that can be printed and mounted/laminated for student use.
