Let’s pause for questions from the audience….
How familiar are you with multigenre text sets? Answer using the stamping tool to the left of the whiteboard! I can explain what it is to someone else. I’ve heard or seen the term. I have no idea!
[object Object],Ebbers, M. (2002). Science text sets: Using various genres to promote literacy and inquiry.  Language Arts  80(1), 40-50.  Multigenre nonfiction text
Genres of Nonfiction Text Explanation Reference Field Guides Biography How-To Narrative Expository Nonfiction Text Journal Informational Text
Reference ,[object Object],“ The moon is Earth’s closest neighbor in space. It is about one quarter of a million miles away. In space that is very close. The moon travels around Earth. It is Earth’s only natural satellite. A satellite is an object that travels around another object. The moon takes about twenty seven days and eight hours to go around the Earth once.” The Moon by Seymour Simon
Reference ,[object Object],“ Long, long ago, before people knew anything about dinosaurs, giant bones were found in China. Wise men who saw the bones tried to guess what sort of enormous  animal they could have come from… … Now we think that many of our own past guesses about dinosaurs were just as wrong as those of ancient China.”
Explanation ,[object Object],“ Throw a ball up into the air. Watch what happens. It goes up for a short time, then falls down… Know what makes things fall? It’s a force called gravity. As long as you are on earth, you can’t get away from it. Gravity is always pulling things. Know which way? Down. Down. Down.” I Fall Down by Vicki Cobb
Field Guides ,[object Object],Fossils By Chris and Helen Pellant
How-To ,[object Object],Light and Color By Tom Jackson
How-To A Parade of Plants by Melissa Stewart
Narrative Expository ,[object Object],“ But as the years went by, something strange happened. The dinosaur’s bones began to turn into stone… … Millions of years went by. Up above, things changed. The river dried up and disappeared, and all the dinosaurs died. Grass and trees grew where the river had been, and different kinds of animals wandered around.” Monster Bones: The Story of a Dinosaur Fossil by Jacqui Bailey
Biography ,[object Object],“ At night, Benjamin lay on his bed and looked out the window. Stars sparkled in the inky-black sky. Some were brighter than others, and Benjamin wondered why. Some groups of starts looked like animals or shapes. Sometimes a star seemed to shoot across the sky. Benjamin wondered why.” Benjamin Banneker: Pioneering Scientist by Ginger Wadsworth
Journal ,[object Object],“ 20 December Today we attach radio transmitters to fifteen penguins. Each transmitter is tuned to a unique frequency. This will allow us to track individual penguins when they go out to sea to feed…The adult penguins with chicks can be extremely defensive, which makes them difficult to catch without getting painful bruises.” My Season with Penguins by Sophie Webb
Let’s pause for questions from the audience….
Creating a multigenre text set ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
Text in an inquiry learning cycle ,[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object],[object Object]
