Student Annotations: Genres of the Intellect

Joyce's students meet twice a week in the summer, so we all get twice the annotations to read this week (this is also why I take the summer off).

Today they posted their annotations for Science Fiction, Literary Fiction, Psychological Suspense, and Mystery. We teach these genres together because they all deal with puzzles that the reader must work out. For more details, I again point you toward the brand new edition of Joyce's book, The Readers' Advisory Guide to Genre Fiction (ALA 2009).

If this appeals to you, go on over to the Word Press blog to see what the students had to say. Maybe you'll find your next good read.
