4 Genres and literature When you speak about genre and literature, genre means a category, or kind of story.

5 All categories of books or stories can be called either fiction or non-fiction. Fiction a made up story can tell about things that could happen is read for fun characters may be like real people or imaginary Non-Fiction has facts that can be checked and proven the author is an expert on this information it IS TRUE!

6 Realistic Fiction Realistic fiction is made up of stories that could really happen. Contemporary realistic fiction is realistic fiction that is set in modern times.

7 Examples of Realistic Fiction The Thing About Jellyfish Joey Pigza Swallowed the Key Better Nate Than Ever Wonder Holes Rules

8 Historical Fiction Historical fiction is made up of stories that take place in a certain time and place in the past. Real historical figures and settings may be included in a fiction story.

9 Examples of Historical Fiction One Crazy Summer Inside Out &Back Again The War that Saved My Life Echo Okay For Now Number the Stars Al Capone Does My Shirts

10 Folklore Folklore includes stories, myths, and fables that people told one another over the years. Later the stories were written down.

11 Examples of Folklore Adventures of Robin Hood Beauty and the Beast The Bunyans Cinderella Aesop s Fables The Tortoise and the Hare Arabian Nights

12 Fantasy Fantasy is fiction that has elements that are not real. Sometimes this includes talking animals or characters with magical powers. There s usually a conflict between good and evil.

13 Examples of Fantasy The Hunger Games series Charlotte s Web The Lightning Thief Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe Lord of the Rings Harry Potter Series

14 Fairy Tale Special beginning and/or ending words - Once upon a time...and they lived happily ever after. Good character Evil character Royalty and/or a castle usually present Magic happens Problem and a Solution Things often happen in "threes" or "sevens"

15 Examples of Fairy Tale The Gingerbread Man The Ugly Duckling The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales Rumpelstiltskin

16 Mystery Mysteries are stories that have a real setting and a problem to be solved that includes clues, distractions, and an answer to the problem.

17 Examples of Mystery And Then There Were None Paper Towns Killing Mr. Griffin Holes The Westing Game Harriet the Spy series

18 Science Fiction Science Fiction is made up of stories that blend fact and fiction with futuristic technology.

19 Examples of Science Fiction Delirium series For the Win My Best Friend is Invisible The Maze Runner The Lunar Chronicles series

20 Adventure The characters (and the reader) can always expect the worst - the main characters can, and usually do, have everything thrown at them. Action, action and more action are hallmarks of a good adventure/suspense book. The entire read is a roller coaster ride of chills and excitement with the last stop (and page) not always ending in happiness. And finally, there must be a villain, for without a foe without an adversary, there can be no adventure no suspense.

21 Examples of Adventure The Outsiders Diary of a Wimpy Kid series The Diary of a Young Girl The Uglies series The Fault in Our Stars

22 Poetry Poetry is verse written to inspire thoughts and feelings in the reader. It often uses rhyme and rhythm, or it can be written in free verse.

23 Examples of Poetry Where the Sidewalk Ends New Kid on the Block Chocolate Dreams: Poems Mammalabilia A Pizza the Size of the Sun Love That Dog

24 Informational Informational books are nonfiction books that give true facts on a variety of subjects.

25 Examples of Informational Writing Dirt Bikes Flying Animals Danger! Earthquakes Newspapers Encyclopedias

26 Biography A biography is the true story of a real person s life from the past or present.

27 Examples of Biography Martin s Dream Day The HomerunKings: BabeRuth and Henry Aaron Clara Barton, a Red Cross Pioneer Sacagawea The Boy on the Wooden Box
