This is a flow chart of the different genres and sub-genres of literature. Teachers can use the flow chart in their class as a tool for students. Students can place the flow chart in their notebook to refer to when a new genre is introduced. There is room on the flow chart for students to write a definition/notes/characteristics for each of the genres. The flow chart can be uploaded on to a SmartBoard to aid with a lesson. The flow chart helps my visual learners to organize and understand the different genres.
