This Deck of 46 BOOM! CardsTM is designed to provide student-scholars with an overview of the literary subgenre of fiction. They are specifically designed for in-class enrichment or self-paced remote or distance learning and practice, as well as for interactive review.

Literary genres can be a very difficult area to teach, and yet, we are called upon to teach them all, often in isolation, and without explanation of how the different genres fit together, or what they mean. This series of Decks, of which this is the second, was created to address this problem gap.

This Boom! Deck gives your student-scholars the basics of Fiction as a genre. It provides student-friendly definitions and examples of 11 of the major subgenres in this genre, the basics of common characteristic found in all fiction, and beginning discussions of the role of the narrator and the narrator’s point of view (PoV). This set has 12 direct teach, 1 instructional, and 33 task cards, and has been set to randomize 12 task cards per play.

To use Boom Cards, you must be connected to the Internet. Boom Cards play on modern browsers (Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge). Apps are available for Android, iPads, iPhones, and Kindle Fires. For security and privacy, adults must have a Boom Learning account to use and assign Boom Cards. You will be able to assign the Boom Cards you are buying with "Fast Pins," (play provides instant feedback for self-grading Boom Cards). Fast Play is always a free way for students to engage with Boom Cards decks. For additional assignment options you'll need a premium account. If you are new to Boom Learning, you will be offered a free trial of our premium account. Read here for details:
