Teaching Genre Series
When I moved from teaching primary to upper intermediate grades in 2001, I entered a class with a generous classroom library, but no reading or writing curriculum. After reviewing the standards, I decided to organize my lessons across different genres.
The first lessons I created were book reports which eventually became the product 25 Book Reports. Over time, I added non-fiction topics as well as fiction.
Over the last several years, I have completed nine writing units also organized by genre. To see this list in my TPT store look for the Writing Genre series.
If I were suddenly dropped into another classroom without curriculum I could teach reading and writing for a couple of years without repeating units.
From now until Sunday evening, you can buy the whole series for $20. Look for the four featured items in my TPT store.
