Remember all those magazine quizzes we took as teens? This genre personality lesson is styled after those quizzes and is a fun way to help students identify which genres are best for them. You can use this bundle with little to no preparation--it's all ready to go!
*update--July 29, 2018--I added a new genre personality, called The Activist! I have updated the bookmarks and quizzes to include The Activist genre personality. This product has developed and grown much in the past few years, and I do plan future updates. If you purchase at today's price, you will lock in today's price and receive all future updates FREE.
The Quiz Bundle includes:
--Four double-sided readalike bookmarks for each of nine genre personalities. One side is the genre personality description; the other side is a list of recommended book titles; sorted by age group (early elementary, upper-elementary, middle school, high school and beyond). All the bookmarks are fully editable with PowerPoint. PDF is of each is also included. (45 pages, editable)
--Printable & editable quizzes for both the ES and MS/HS versions--You can use these instead of the PowerPoint presentation--I've used these with my classes, and they are FABULOUS! It was a lot easier on me, and the lesson went a little faster than it does with the PowerPoint.--2 pages for each quiz (4 pages, editable)
--Printable genre personality description cards--3 pages each for MS/HS and ES (6 pages, editable)
--PowerPoint quizzes for both ES and MS/HS versions (54 slides, all editable)
This product includes TWO versions of the genre personality quiz--elementary and middle/high school. Both versions include 12 questions, but the elementary version has simpler language and includes some modified answer choices. For example, "The Romantic" genre personality for MS/HS is "The Bestie" (focusing on friendship rather than romance) for ES.
The multiple choice questions include:
Right now, you would rather be...
You read because...
You love movies that...
Pick a career...
You love movies that... (different set of answer choices)
Choose a place...
You'd like to meet...
Which sounds interesting...
Pick a pet...
Pick some clothes...
What's in your backpack?
Which emoji best represents you?
