First, we need to understand what the word 'Genre' means. Genre is just a fancy word for type of story.
Look at the explanation below and the examples at the bottom of the slide.
I bet you recognise some of these stories!
Now, read the information on the slide below.
This will help us understanding what conventions are and how we recognise the genre of a story through its conventions.
Look carefully at the conventions of a fairy tale. If a story includes all these conventions, this would tell us it is a fairy tale.
Look carefully at the model below. You are provided with two boxes. Each box describes the conventions of a type of story (genre).
You have to identify which conventions are describing a Fable.
As you can see the correct answer has been identified. These conventions describe a Fable.
First, write the date and LC. Then, Match the correct genre (type of story) to the conventions.
In other words, which conventions describe a:
Myths and Legends story.
Action and Adventure story.
