    • 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?
  • 4. 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.
  • 5. 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.
  • 6. Benefits of a Multigenre Paper
    • Students are engaged in metacognition
    • The multigenre paper easily allows for differentiation for all learners.
    • Multiple literacies are valued.
  • 7. 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.
  • 8. 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.

  • 10. 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:
  • 11. 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:
