Genre Study: Teaching with Fiction and Nonfiction Books is the foundational text of the Genre Study Suite. In exploring Genre Study, Fountas & Pinnell advocate teaching and learning in which students are actively engaged in developing genre understandings and applying their thinking to any genre.

Genre Study is a professional resource that teachers can use with students to embark on an exciting exploration into the study of genre.
