What is a MGRP?
"A multigenre paper arises from research, experience, and imagination. It is not an uninterrupted, expository monolog nor a seamless narrative nor a collection of poems. A multigenre paper is composed of many genres and subgenres, each piece self-contained, making a point of its own, yet connected by theme or topic and sometimes by language, images, and content. In addition to many genres, a multigenre paper may also contain many voices, not just the author's. The trick is to make such a paper hang together."
~~ (Romano, Blending Genre, Altering Style i-xi)
Genres are separated into six different categories:
Group 1: Print Media
Group 2: Visual with Words
Group 3: Visual Display
Group 4: Informational
Group 5: Creative Writing
Group 6: Structured
The BEST PART? It can be used in ANY grade level!
