The 40 book assignment genres


I thought some of you might be interested in the genres I finally settled on for the assignment. After thinking through our course and the syllabus requirements I settled on 10 which I think will cover most tastes. I have left it with the kids to add other genres/classifications if they have a particular interest and it can’t be covered by the genres I have set.

They are:

  •  Biography/Autobiography/Memoir
  •  Fantasy
  •  Historical Fiction
  •  Mystery
  •  Non-fiction
  •  Picture books/Graphic Novels
  •  Poetry
  •  Realistic Fiction
  •  Science Fiction
  •  Short Stories

About lyntiernan

I teach kids. Mostly English but sometimes good manners, how to have fun learning, that you are never too old to learn something new, that we all make mistakes and what we do about mistakes is who we become, that the future is not some place we are going to but a place we are creating and... I like learning and adapting new technology in the classroom I'm good with my new IWB, websites and email but hopeless with mobile phones!
