Take the Reading Genre Poll

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Here are the final results of the Reading Genre Poll! Click to enlarge and find out the most popular genres preferred by students at ROE. Even though there are evidently some that are more popular than others, it is also clear that we have fans for every genre of reading!



ROE students can share their favorite kinds of things to read (either online or offline) by taking this short poll. A 'genre' is a type or category of reading. You can choose more than one, since you probably like to read more than just one! When you are done, you can click 'View Results' to find out about other students favorite genres.
