PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This resource includes 5 different author biography close reading passages that can be used as independent work or homework. It’s perfect for any time of the year. The students will learn about the lives of five of the most popular children’s authors:
J.K. Rowling (The Harry Potter series)
Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid series)
Rick Riordan (Percy Jackson series)
Anthony Horowitz (Alex Rider series)
Kate DiCamillo (Because of Winn-Dixie, The Tale of Desperaux, and others)

The passages are written in a Lexile range of 740 - 790. They include the author’s childhood, obstacles, and major accomplishments.

Each close read contains three pages of questions that are aligned to Common Core informational reading standards. The questions are rigorous and include inferential and higher level questions that require students to answer using evidence from the text.

In addition to the close reading passages and questions, I have include a close reading strategies poster, a notes organizer, a writing prompt, a book review page, and an About the Author page.

When students have finished reading about these authors, you can use my Author Study Pages to complete an author study and then write to the author.
