If you had to define genre based on our readings so far and your own understanding of genre, what would that definition be?
Think about each of the readings and their specific genre and support your definition with examples from the readings so far.
Log onto Perusall and look at your ideas and notes (and your classmates’ ideas and notes) on several of our readings about genre.
Identify the differences in genre between “First Day” by Edward Jones, “Schools are Killing Curiosity,” one of the James Baldwin writings that we’ve read (“A Talk to Teachers” and “If Black English Isn’t a Language…”), or Kerry Dirk’s “Navigating Genres.” Be specific. Talk through and demonstrate how each author uses genre and post here in the comment section of our class Open Lab site.
