Why is genre important
Why is Genre important?

  • “You can’t just write “writing”; you’ve got to be writing something,--whether it’s a thank-you note or novel or journal entry. And until you know what kind of thing you’re making, you’re going to be silent.” ~Lattimer, 2003

What is the multi genre portfolio
What is theMulti-Genre Portfolio?

  • “Each piece in the [portfolio] utilizes a different genre, reveals a facet of the topic, and makes its own point. Conventional devices do not connect the pieces in a multi-genre paper, nor are the pieces always arranged in chronological order. The [portfolio] is instead a collage of writing and artistic expression with an overarching theme that engulfs and informs the reader.” ~Allen, 2001

  • Associate It —How does the topic connect to other issues/subjects (what does it make you think of?)

  • Analyze It —How would you break it into smaller parts (How is it made or what is it composed of?)
