Author Cards Lesson Plan
This is a great little plan that can be used over the entire semester or throughout the year as an extra credit plan that helps familiarize your students with the classic authors, encourages organization and strategy. Kids love to collect, and if you capture their attention early enough they might even do it on their own.
The project is aimed at English Language Arts, however, it can be used by other teachers by substituting pictures of people from other fields (many available on the internet): Great Scientists, Mathematicians, Politicians, etc.
Students will receive an Author Card as a reward for good work on any assignment -- much as stickers are usually given for good papers.
Students will collect the cards over the semester (or throughout the year) and try to make a complete set. They will be encouraged to keep track of what they have collected and what other students have collected with the option to trade duplicate cards.
