Comparing and Contrasting Genres - Weebly

Comparing and Contrasting Genres Test Prep Tuesday Comparing/Contrasting Genres A reluctant hero saves a village. An unhappy kid learns a secret that changes his life. How many books or movies have you seen with one of these storylines? Many new stories are actually old stories retold in new ways,

and sometimes in a different genre. Comparing/Contrasting Genres A genre is a specific category of literature, such as poetry, drama, fantasy, or historical fiction. Theme A theme is the larger message of a text. It is a

phrase, not a word. What is the theme of The Tortoise and the Hare? What about The Boy Who Called Wolf? How do these two texts compare and contrast? Draw a Venn Diagram on the back of the blue sheet To Fight Aloud Is Very Brave by

Emily Dickinson 1 To fight aloud, is very brave, But gallanter, I know, Who charge within the bosom, The Cavalry of Woe, 5 Who win, and nations do not see, Who falland none observe, Whose dying eyes, no Country, Regards with patriot love,

10 We trust, in plumed procession For such, the Angels go, Rank after Rank, with even feet, And Uniforms of Snow. -What is the genre of this text? Write it above the left-hand side of your Venn Diagram Answer the following in the left-hand side of your

Venn Diagram: -What is the topic of the poem? -What is the theme, or main message? Brave Soldiers by Lin Mori When Tasha came downstairs early Saturday morning, her father was dressed in full military uniform. His duffle bag was leaning against the front door, and his smile didnt seem quite real. When he kneeled down, Tasha fit into his arms like a key

in a lock. Remember, he said calmly, that its my job to protect our country, and its your job to be strong and brave at home. Tasha nodded in agreement, but she could feel her eyes swelling. Some tears escaped, but Tasha knew she couldnt show her father how afraid she was. She would have to be brave for him now, and for herself, until he returned. -What is the genre of this text?
