Genre Study

What is a genre?


A category of artistic composition, as in music or literature, characterized by similarities if form, style, or subject matter.

Great. So now what?

So now you and your groups need to create a handout using S'more online. Remember that your handout should include the type of genre your group is studying and what makes your genre your genre. For example, if you were writing about music and looking at Rock and Roll, you would want to talk about the fact that the genre is actually made up of rhythm and blues and country.

Remember to be creative, informative, and have fun! The class is trusting you to provide accurate information in an informative way.
