Genre Resources

If you happen to be teaching literary genres this year, I have two great resources that can really help. Use these genre task cards to help your students gain familiarity with the 8 different genres:
  • biography
  • informational
  • mystery
  • fantasy
  • science fiction
  • historical fiction
  • realistic fiction
  • folktale
Each card features a short passage and four choices for selecting the correct genre. 


If you want to go deeper, Guided Reports and Projects for 7 Literary Genres could be just what you are looking for. For each genre there is a pre-reading sheet, a two-page guided book report and a project menu grid. The pages for historical fiction are shown below.


Each of the genres above are featured in this packet except for folktales. You can get a resources for teaching folktales here
