Genres of Writing

What are the four basic genres of writing? While there is helpful information here about distinguishing between fiction, nonfiction, drama, and poetry, the day's activities are not laid out well. The lesson suggests having learners read part of "Meadowlark of the Border" and determine which genre it is, but consider printing out excerpts of several different readings to have learners work in groups to categorize their stack.
