You asked what students do during the mini-lesson or for their reading task when they are not reading the genre we are studying. Whenever we begin a genre study, my students are asked to have at least 3 books from that genre in their book box at all times. This allows them to have the necessary books available to use when doing tasks related to a specific genre.
