After students finish reading a book independently, they will use what they learned from the presentation to identify the book’s genre in their book reviews for their ELA teacher.
Main Curriculum Tie:
Background For Teachers:
Prior to the first lesson, gather examples of each genre, creating a Box for each group of students. (We planned on 36 students, so that is 9 boxes). Number each box, making a spread sheet of each title and genre and box( for grading)
Students gather, Librarian hands out the Genre work booklet, Begin the video ILessonLady. "Literature Genres." YouTube.
Present PowerPoints for Classic and Traditional Literature.
Instructor models how to identify the genre of a book, complete with evidence and characteristics of the genre found in each book.
Play matching activity (with examples from “the Genre Jar”) with genre types on the board. Students take turns drawing out a brief book summary and, in small groups, discuss and decide which genre(s) it belongs to. Then present their decision to the whole class.
Create groups of 4 students. Then, using a mixed-genre set of books, and the notes they took during the presentation, students will identify the genres represented in each set, give evidence and the characteristic of that genre which applies to each book.
Strategies For Diverse Learners:
For more advanced students:
ELA teachers grade and give points for the book reviews students write for each book they complete
