Modes, Genres, and Formats and the Common Core State Standards

Modes, Genres, and Formats and the Common Core State Standards | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

Hardly a week goes by that I’m not asked about the differences between modes, genres, and formats.  I admit, it’s pretty confusing out there when you try to sort it out on your own.  Here is how I keep the terms separate in my work–I hope it helps you, too.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This thoughtful article will help define terms we encounter as we dig into the traits.  Modes of writing and genres of writing carry expectations as to format and audience. This will determine voice and organization.  


For good measure we need to consider the Modes of writing that are highlighted by the Common Core Standards.

WritingFix: Genres...Narrative & Memoir

WritingFix: Genres...Narrative & Memoir | 6-Traits Resources | Scoop.it

How did this page of resources come about? The 2009-2010 school year was our Year of Narrative Writing at WritingFix and in Northern Nevada. We hosted inservice workshops for 100 lucky teacher teachers, where we gave away, read, and discussed Ralph Fletcher's How to Write Your Life Story as well as his Marshfield Dreams: When I Was a Kid. We sponsored the creation of new narrative resources, especially for grades 3-5, since our Nevada fifth graders are tested using a narrative writing prompt. Those resources ultimately became a new print guide for all Northern Nevada teachers in March of 2011. Below, you can find out how you can obtain your own copy of our "Show Me Your Story" Print Guide.

 

On this free-to-access page of resources, you will find the best-of-the-best narrative resources that were created as part of our Year of Narrative Writing.
