Reading Genres

Do you have a favorite reading genre? What about a genre that you dislike and avoid reading? I bet you do because as readers we all have personal preferences about what we like (or dislike) to read. And if we REALLY want our students to become life-long readers, then they need to have a clear understanding of all things related to genre. When students can identify and understand the attributes of each genre they begin to discover what they like and don't like to read. Teaching genre is such an easy way to help your students become life long readers.

Reading Genre Inventory

This reading inventory is a fun way to help students figure out what genre they should read next! Students can go through this "choose your own genre" inventory several times and get different answers each time. It's such a fun way to help students explore different genres.
