Engage your students with these rigorous genre performance tasks that are aligned to various reading standards that must be covered throughout the year!
These tasks are made for students to test their conceptual understanding AFTER the genre characteristics have been taught and practiced.
Students will be asked to participate in 7-8 real world scenarios from solving an interactive bulletin board for a librarian, helping a peer match up movie genres to summaries, to texting made up book summaries based on given genres to siblings.
These activities were meant to be used throughout the year to refresh on genres and keep that deep thinking flowing.
Perfect for independent practice, homework, enrichment, authentic assessments, or for literacy centers. These tasks also lend themselves to accountable talk, as justification can be made for every answer.
