RESEARCH LABS® Genre Studies

RESEARCH LABS is a backwards design model that allows teachers to differentiate instruction while teaching grade level content standards to all students. Starting with big ideas/concepts students need to grasp in order to master state standards, we backmap to create a project-based learning framework through which students read, write, engage in accountable talk, and produce their own books on independent research topics.

Teach Elements of a Genre

Each student engages in a carefully scaffolded, extended research project, taking a final written product in the selected genre through the entire writing process from note-making to publication.

Unit of Study

Teachers use a novel or a set of short stories in the selected genre to teach students to read literature and write literary analysis essays. Students will engage in informational research on the companion topic to gain the expertise necessary to create their own narratives in the genre. A genre card and graphic organizers structure the teaching and application of the Common Core Standards to literature.

Grade Level Complex Text

Teachers provide grade-level rigor through the use of complex text to teach literature in one genre, ELA CCSS, and academic vocabulary.

Leveled Texts

Students are immersed in a genre through a leveled library of literature and informational texts of the sort authors use when they research and write in this genre.
