    Multigenre Presentation Multigenre Presentation Presentation Transcript

    • Presented by Buffy Hamilton, Ed.S. Georgia Council of English Teachers 2009 Conference February 7, 2009 Jekyll Island, Georgia http://theunquietlibrarian.wikispaces.com
      • A multi-genre research essay is a collection of pieces written in a variety of genres, informed by your research on a particular subject that presents one or more perspectives on a research question.
      • A primary goal is to “experiment” with genres or “learning artifacts” to represent key learnings and understandings..
      • Alternate genres allow students’ creativity to shine while still informing the audience of their research findings.
      What Is a Multigenre Research Paper?
    • Why Multigenre?
      • Students make conscious decisions about the genres they choose.
      • Students explain why they chose a particular genre.
      • Students incorporate research findings and information in a creative way.
    • Qualities of a Multigenre Research Paper
      • Helps a researcher look at a topic from many different angles/lenses.
      • Includes traditional writing elements in addition to alternative genres.
    • Benefits of a Multigenre Paper
      • Students are engaged in metacognition
      • The multigenre paper easily allows for differentiation for all learners.
      • Multiple literacies are valued.
    • Multigenre Research and Information Literacy
      • Work with your librarian to develop a research pathfinder to help your students access information resources.
      • Your librarian can incorporate mini-lessons about search strategies, information source evaluation, and ethical use of information.
      • Encourage students to use traditional and nontraditional authoritative sources of information.
    • Tips for Success
      • Provide sufficient scaffolding and organization of the research task.
      • Provide ample time for inquiry and exploration.
      • Provide concrete examples of alternate genres to help students visualize possibilities.
      • Incorporate frequent checkpoints to help students stay on track.

    • The Repetend
      • 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 to.
      From http://www.sheboyganfalls.k12.wi.us/cyberenglish9/multi_genre/multigenre.htm#Use%20of%20repetition/motif:
    • Incorporating Repetend
      • 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
      From http://www.sheboyganfalls.k12.wi.us/cyberenglish9/multi_genre/multigenre.htm#Use%20of%20repetition/motif:
