Use differing Genre in teaching Reading and Writing

This reminds me of the work of Debbie Miller “Reading for Meaning”
I love this bulletin board which can be used to stimulate both reading and writing.

I’ve posted these two images from the work of Cass a reading specialist after recent discussions about the growing effects of NAPLAN particularly on writing. It seems the genre we teach is narrowing to narrative (what sort of narrative I ask), persuasive and an occasional non fiction text.

Interested in your thoughts
