|Reading and Writing Across the Bend||
Following Dr. John O'Flahaven's research - Consume, Critique, Produce (CCP) - it is critical that learners should first consume a genre by immersion in a myriad of mentor text, peer discussion, and participation in various opportunities for reflection. After the student has built a framework for analysis (schema), they should then critique the genre though a scaffolded approach in looking deeper and analyzing critical attributes of the genre—what is the author doing? Why? How? And how does that impact how you interpret the genre? Finally, after much consumption and critiquing of the genre, then students are finally ready to produce the genre. This section supports both instructional resources and strategies to support this research in our genre instruction.
