Fiction Genres Introduction
Transcript of Fiction Genres Introduction
x marks the spot
What's a genre?
Story based on the imagination of the author
Fiction means fake
Written to entertain the reader
Characterized by a setting, characters, dialog, problem/conflict, and the climax and solution
There are two main
fiction and nonfiction.
Written works based on facts
Nonfiction means true
Written to inform the reader
Characterized by providing information about topics, and various text structures
Adventure stories have lots of action
The entire story is a roller coaster ride of chills and excitement
The story does not always end happily
There must be a villain, for without one there is no story
Story includes elements that are impossible like talking animals and magic powers
Make-believe is what this genre's all about
Realistic fiction is made up of stories that could really happen
Historical fiction is made up of stories that happened in a specific time and place in the past
The horror genre seeks to create a mood of anxiety or fear
In these stories something is just not right
The evil element often wins
Stories in the humor genre are lighthearted and fun
These books poke fun at situations and have humorous elements
There is a puzzle involved or some unexplained event
Both the reader and the protagonist (hero) get to figure it out, step by step
Science fiction is made up of stories that blend fact, fiction and technology together
It can be any time period, but it's usually in the future
Traditional fiction is made up of folk tales, fairy tales, tall tales, legends, fables and myths
These are the stories that were passed down over many generations, for hundreds or even thousands of years
I like ghost stories
A genre is a kind,
or type of literature (writing).
