Students read a passage of your choosing and circle whether it is Fiction or Nonfiction. Then if it is fiction they list the subgenres. For example they might write subgenre: “Folklore” and under the second subgenre “Tall Tale”
If it is a nonfiction passage they may write the genre if it is “Biography” or they may write whether it is a Persuasive essay or Informational essay.
I used this for pretests and posttests but it could be used multiple ways.
