Issue Theme: Genre Studies

  • Genre Studies

    Jane Hansen and Vivian Vasquez

    Abstract: In this issue you will read about elementary children who are introduced to genre primarily through their teachers reading aloud. The children are invited to become inquirers who continue to explore books as they meet in small groups to write and read on their own—from fantasy to African folktales to poetry.

    Keywords: Literature, Pedagogy, Writing, Reading

I enjoyed Dick Koblitz as my third grade teacher. I am now 22 years old and his teaching has still resonated with me throughout all these years. Thanks so much Mr. Koblitz! -hss
