This is a review quiz to compare and contrast the genres of fiction and nonfiction. Students may use their class notes to aid them during this quiz.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Fiction is a genre that is real, as in it could "really happen."

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Fiction is a genre that is not real, as it consists of stories and events that are imagined or invented rather than being based on real-life occurrences. Fictional works can include elements that are fantastical or impossible in reality, making them different from non-fiction genres that deal with real events and facts. Therefore, the statement that fiction is a genre that is real and could "really happen" is incorrect.

Fiction refers to literature that is based on imaginary events and characters, and the title of a fiction text often provides clues or hints about what the story is about. It can give the reader an idea of the genre, setting, or main idea of the text, helping them anticipate the plot or theme that will be explored within the story.

    The "title" feature of a nonfiction text may communicate information about the topic because nonfiction texts are based on real events, facts, and information. The title of a nonfiction text is often designed to give the reader a clear idea of what the text is about, allowing them to understand the subject matter before reading. By including relevant keywords or phrases in the title, the author can effectively convey the main topic or theme of the nonfiction text.

Reading the text aloud helps with pronunciation, fluency, and overall comprehension. These strategies promote active reading and enhance the reader's interaction with the text, leading to improved comprehension and retention of information.
