Views follow the adventures of Scoop, a fictional detective from a series of mystery novels set in the 1940's. When Scoop is accidentally removed from his environment by this author, he journeys through several genres, including a fairy tale, a science fiction story, a gothic tale, an adventure novel, and a romance novel. As Scoop searches for the genre in which his character belongs, students will learn why writers choose genres; the components of each genre; the importance of the characters, setting, and style; the role of the audience, common story lines, and more.
