This is an author study that allows students to choose an author that they would like to read. The students will create a biography for their author, poster presentation, three synopsis/ summaries, a paper on the similarities between the author's works, and a form filled out about each book that they read. This unit takes about 6 to 8 weeks to complete but it covers over 60 state standards. Throughout the course of this unit, I have seen my non-readers latch on to an author and actual become veracious readers. This is a unit that I will continue to use in my classroom for years to come.
