Our Comparing Genres Lesson Plan enables students to identify, compare the key elements of, and synthesize different genres of literature. Anchor charts are used to interactively explore and explain key definitions and elements for the major genres of fiction and nonfiction. Students are asked to engage in reading, discussing, and writing various fiction and nonfiction genres with a partner to expand their literary awareness. Students are also asked to write short stories using two different genres.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify, compare, and synthesize genres by reading, discussing, and writing various fiction and nonfiction genres.
