Genres include poetry, novels, short stories, plays, memoirs, graphic novels, and a variety of nonfiction texts. The study of these texts includes reflective and analytical writing opportunities. Students use critical thinking skills, as modeled by their teacher, and apply them to assignments independently and in cooperative-learning groups.
