Genres of literature are discernable patterns in which certain types of information are provided. The message is often delivered in a form and style in which resonates with the intended audience. The concept of genres to classify literature has taken a dramatic shift over time. About twenty-five hundred years ago literature was either a comedy of a tragedy. Today there is such a huge explosion of content during the information age that has made the possibilities seem endless. Once a reader has a good idea on the genres of a work, they tend to attribute learned values towards that piece. This helps make the piece more meaningful for the readers. The worksheets presented below will help students begin to learn to classify works by their style of format.
