Radical Change in Young Adult Literature Informs the Multigenre Paper.
Glasgow, Jacqueline N.
English Journal, v92 n2 p41-51 Nov 2002
Notes that a difficulty with the multigenre paper assignment is that educators assume that students are familiar enough with the various genres to write skillfully in the genres they select. Suggests that multigenre assignments can be improved by changing forms and format; changing perspectives; and changing boundaries. Concludes that multigenre papers thus provide the opportunity for students to develop expressive and poetic language. (PM)
