        Laurie Swistak's Lesson | Write in the Middle Workshop 5: Teaching Multigenre Writing

        In Laurie Swistak's classroom, fifth graders at Cranston-Calvert Elementary School in Newport, Rhode Island begin a multigenre research unit based on people or events of historical significance. Over the course of the semester, the students produce at least ten pieces in ten different genres about their topics. The unit culminates in May with oral presentations for the students' parents. This link includes a bio for educator Lisa Swistak and a full lesson plan in multigenre writing.
