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!
*Note: On November 12, 2016, I updated this quiz to add several items. If you purchased this item before November 12, you can re-download the file to access all the new additions. The Quiz Bundle now includes:
--all 32 genre personality bookmarks (4 bookmarks for each Genre Personality. One side is genre personality description; the other side is a list of recommended book titles; sorted by age group)--16 pages
--printable/editable quizzes for both the ES and MS/HS versions--you can use these instead of the PowerPoint presentation--I used these last week and LOVED them! It was a lot easier on me, and the lesson went a little faster.--3 pages
--printable genre personality description cards--2 pages (editable; included with the printable quiz)
--PowerPoint quizzes for both ES and MS/HS versions--55 pages total (editable)
This product includes TWO versions of the genre personality quiz--elementary and middle/high school. The elementary version has simpler language, a few changes in the choices, and I changed "The Romantic" genre personality to "The Bestie," which focuses on friendship rather than romance. I also removed two somewhat redundant questions from the elementary quiz to make it a little shorter.
The middle/high quiz includes 12 questions, each with 8 answer options that coordinate with the 8 genre personalities. The elementary quiz includes 10 questions and 8 genre personalities.
