    Directions for Multigenre Entries
    Create two genres like you did for your multigenre project. One genre will be an essay based on the person’s religious beliefs. The other genre will be a List Poem or a 6-Room poem.
    For the religious beliefs essay, you will answer the question: How does your person spread Christ’s message of love, tolerance, justice, acceptance, and peace? In other words, does the person’s "faith" show through his/her works and/or contributions? Explain. Essay will be 2-3 pages double-spaced.
    Each genre needs research.
    Your book is the research, but you can research and use other sources as well.

    1. “The Book Room: Georgia O’Keeffe’s Library in Abiquiu.”
    List Poem
    Purpose
    Writer can convey a lot of information in a simple way
    Helps show the characteristics and quirks of a person
    Allows the writer to quickly confront readers with abundant details, enabling them to see an untainted, holistic picture.
    In list making, syntax and logical connections of language are not important.
    Simple, unexplained, occasionally poetic
    The list usually appears in a single column
    One item per line, like a grocery list
    The first few words and last words are the most memorable
    List of at least 20 items

    Fierce Heart is the biography of a community and a portrait of its people. Although Makaha is a small, isolated town on the Western coast of Oahu, it has produced some of the most intriguing Hawaiians of the twentieth century: world-class surfers Buffalo Keaulana and his sons Rusty and Brian; beautiful skin diver and surfing pro Rell Sunn; and larger than life singer and songwriter Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. What connects them is a love for their culture, their people, and various kinds of water sports. Fierce Heart combines stories of exciting big wave surfing competitions, dramatic water rescues, deep friendships, and touching family portraits with a look at the history and origins of one of the world’s most thrilling extreme sports.
