  • Students distinguish the characteristics of the following:

    • informational text, fiction, nonfiction, drama, poetry, fable, legend, fairy tale, myth, autobiography, and biography. (see above links in Supporting Resources Section)

  • While the Genre Guidance gives an overview of what genres should be taught PK-12, those genres should be used to help illuminate meaning in text by providing a form for ideas, topics, and themes.

    • Students can use their knowledge of various genres to make inferences about texts they are reading.

Due to recursive nature of the standards, it is essential that teachers are aware of how all objectives within and between strands work together for optimal instruction.
