Genre Project - Help I teach language arts, and at my school we cannot use novels during the first quarter (departmental thing). I already have a writing project planned near the beginning of the quarter, but I also want to do a project near the end of the quarter as well. I’m thinking about doing a genre project. Students would be put into groups. Each group would be assigned a genre. They would have to research it and then create a product about the genre. (I figure this will be a good way to introduce students to different genres before we read and interact with them later on in the year.) Does this sound like a good idea? How can I improve upon it? How could I differentiate the project? Could compacting work? I’m really trying to rack my brain on this one, but not having much luck! :unsure: Thank you!
