This multigenre unit is designed to give students practice with the different genres of writing that they may have learned throughout the course of the school year. This unit covers: narrative, informational, persuasive, and creative genres.
The unit has a menu of options for students to choose from within each genre. My hope is that choice will heighten engagement.
These are meant to be very short pieces of writing that are completed in one week each.
At the end of the unit, the students will display their pieces of writing in some way. Some students may do posters, bound books, or any other method to put them all together.
