- Anything else people should know about this genre
You will present your one-pager with your group afterward.

3. Present your genre posters with your group. (Distance learners, just submit yours with the rest of your work.)
4. Read the book you are currently reading for 10 minutes (you can also grab a book of Mx. Floch's shelf). After reading and based on what you have read so far, answer the following questions:
- What genre is your book in?
- How do you know? How does the author establish genre in this book?
- How does the book meet or not meet the expectations of this genre?
5. What type of story (short story, novelette, novella, novel) are you planning to write for your longer project? How did you make this choice?
