Deborah Dean, director of the Central Utah Writing Project, wrote Genre Theory: Teaching, Writing, and Being in response to an exigency in the community: a need for a broader and more comprehensive theory of writing.

Dean, Deborah, 1952-Genre theory: teaching, writing, and being, Deborah Dean. Genre theory is based on the idea that writ-ing is social and that it responds to situations; consequently, writing isn't the same for every person or every situation. Genre theory is "messy" and "complex," to use Amy Devitt's words, and that makes it hard to define-but, for me, it provides answers that help me improve my in-struction and student writing (Writing 219). Those answers make it worth the mess and complexity. So what are the benefits of using genre theory in the classroom?

Contemporary genre theory is probably not what you learned in college. Its dynamic focus on writing as a social activity in response to a particular situation makes it a powerful tool for teaching practical skills and preparing students to write beyond the classroom.

These wide-ranging activities can be modified for a broad variety of grade levels and student interests.
