Synopsis

In exploring Genre Study, Fountas & Pinnell advocate teaching and learning in which students are actively engaged in developing genre understandings and applying their thinking to any genre. It is through using genre understandings that your students think, talk, and read texts with deeper understanding, and write effectively. Genre Study is a professional resource that teachers can use with students to embark on an exciting exploration into the study of genre.

The Genre Study Suite Bundle is a comprehensive suite of resources that focuses on genre study through inquiry-based learning with an emphasis on reading comprehension and the craft of writing.
