6th Grade Speed Dating Genres

6th Grade Speed Dating Genres | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

We're speed dating this week. Several 6th grade teachers want their students to explore different fiction genres. I decided to make some personal ads (pictured above) for different genres or subgenres. I already had resources lists in Destiny for these genres, so it made it easy. We have eleven tables, which we'll load with books and an ad. Students will have to rotate through at least 4 tables. They'll be discussing genres in class, but I made an exit ticket so I can track which are the most popular (I still have one more book order to place.) If you're interested, here's a link to the ads, and a link to the exit ticket. The ads document has the titles listed separately at the end, to make it easier for my aides to cut them out! :)

How a School Hallway Became a Literary Masterpiece

How a School Hallway Became a Literary Masterpiece | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
To get students interested in books, this school decided to dress up their drab hallways.
GwynethJones's insight:

Very cool!


But...it woulda also been cool if they left a few of the spines empty & painted that area w/ chalboard paint so that the titles could be changed & updated!


I think murals can be tricky (believe me, I painted one in my home foyer) they can look dated after a few years & principals are loathe to paint over them for nostalgia's sake.


Can't leave a comment because it's another Facebook comment thingy! Also can't credit A. Stout because his/her Twitter isn't listed nor the first name. I like giving credit, It's good Karma!
