We are all aware of the three types of writing that are listed in the AZ ELA standards, and the characteristics of each. It is important to understand that those writing types are listed individually for the sake of organization, not because they are primarily “stand alone” writing types. The reality is that most authentic writing that is expected of a college and career ready student blends the types of writing according to the task, purpose, and audience of the text. Teaching students to identify and model blended writing will expand their genre repertoire, and prepare them for a multitude of authentic writing tasks in the post-secondary world.
