Genre Lesson 2

I’m constantly revising and attempting to improve my methods and materials.  So, even though I already had a genre PowerPoint lesson, I made another one.  Personally, I feel that this is an improvement over the last slide show, but be sure to let me know how you feel about it.

Genre Lesson 2 – An awesome and animated PowerPoint slide show explaining genres and subgenres of literature.  This lesson includes ten practice problems at the end to help you informally assess your students.

    Genre Lesson 2 PowerPoint

    Where is the key? You had the key on the last slide of the first Genre lesson PPT you made, but I see none here.

    BTW – I LOVE your site. It has been a tremendous blessing to me this year.
