    On another subject... I saw that you posted about teaching genres. I taught my students about different genres for fiction earlier this year. I created a power point and broke down the genres as follows: fantasy, fairy tale, folktale, myth, legend, and fable. On each slide a put what the characteristics are of each genre and the students actually learned what each genre was in about 45 minutes. It was amazing. Then we created posters on chart paper to hang in the room. One for each genre. We listed the characteristics and then sometimes when we read books aloud, we write the title under the correct genre. I don't know if this makes any sense, but it really worked. My students know the genres.
