Genres, Genres Everywhere

Young readers assume the role of Genre Sleuths to investigate the characteristics of folktales, fantasies, and mysteries. For this session you will need to collect a variety of books on a topic you have been studying. Groups then examine the books and chart the typical beginnings and characteristics of the various genres. Finally, pairs craft a sentence that shows the typical characteristics of a particular genre.
