Give your students a bright reminder of all the different genres of texts in your classroom. This poster set includes many different genres, the definitions of each, and shows colorful examples of each type of text.
Recently my district adopted a new reading program. As I taught the new curriculum with my students, I quickly realized that the genre posters I had displayed in my room for years did not seem to match the updated, new, 21st Century genres reflected in the program. With curriculum, testing, and standards always changing, I began to think that perhaps other teachers may have the same problem. This is the basis on which I developed this product.
This intent of the product is not a cover-all that includes every single genre, but rather includes some that you may not currently have displayed in your classroom. Although every genre is not represented, it seems that you could find a poster in this set to fit almost any text that you are reading with your students.
Genres included in this set:
-Internet Bulletin Board
I sincerely hope that this helps you as you help develop strong readers and thinkers in your classroom!
