Tutor description

Begin with showing students several movie posters (using LCD projector and Promethean Board) and asking students if they can tell me what “kind” of movie it is (no posters should be of the science fiction genre). Write the suggestions on board as they’re given. Then explain that these “kinds” are genres. Ask if anyone can give a basic definition of the term “genre” without using the word “kind”. Help students to develop that definition and write it on the board. Now show them the poster for Star Wars. Surely someone will answer science fiction.
