Genre Study: Teaching with Fiction and Nonfiction Booksis a comprehensive volume that focuses on genre study through inquiry-based learning with an emphasis on reading comprehension and the craft of writing. In exploring genre study, Irene Fountas and Gay Su Pinnell advocate a way of thinking and learning where students are actively engaged in the thinking process. You engage students deeply and constantly with a variety of high-quality texts so that they learn a process for building an internal foundation of information on which further learning may be based. They learn how to develop genre understanding and can apply their thinking to any genre. In Genre Study, the authors concentrate on three major instructional contexts for reading and writing, Interactive Read-Aloud, Readers' Workshop, and Writers' Workshop, which facilitate a deeper conversation about the study of genre and its role in high-quality literacy programs. Fountas and Pinnell have crafted a professional resource that teachers can use with students to embark on an exciting exploration into the study of genre.
