    • repetend is something added to your multigenre web project that repeats or continues
    • the purpose of repetend is to create unity among the various genre pieces and to give the writer an editorial voice that the reader can easily relate
    From http://www.sheboyganfalls.k12.wi.us/cyberenglish9/multi_genre/multigenre.htm#Use%20of%20repetition/motif:
  • 14.
    • include the same phrase, sentence, or passage in each genre page as a heading or somewhere else in the text
    • include a description or design in each piece (written or graphic), placed strategically for easy recognition
    • include a running commentary from you, the writer, following or preceding each genre piece
    • create a character and follow his/her reactions to pieces
    • create a character involved somehow in each piece of writing--an ongoing little story
    • create a cartoon strip at the top or bottom of each genre page that comments on the ideas presented
