This resource can be used in a variety of ways. One popular way to read different genres is to spread them out throughout the school year – doing a different genre each month or so. Students will soon know what is expected and things should run smoothly by the second or third book.
In order to facilitate exploration of the genres, both the guided book reports and the projects on the project choice grids have been tailored for each genre. For example, the Historical Fiction report focuses more on the setting, while the Mystery report focuses more on plot and the Realistic Fiction report is focused more on the main character.
These will print out fine in color or grayscale. The entire packet is offered in both PDF and Word formats for easy editing.
