Product Description
Authors have been pursuading, informing, and entertaining readers for thousands of years. Some authors write to help readers understand themselves, while others attempt to help readers understand other people. Furthermore, some authors offer readers an escape from their own realities and to experience new settings. Since many authors’ personal experiences influence what they write, much insight can be gained from studying the people behind the books. For this assignment, students will choose a famous author to study and create a project to showcase their learning.

This resource guides students through conducting their own research report on a famous author (85 topics are listed). After choosing a topic to focus on, students are asked to conduct research using the Internet and books while following criteria. Next, students are asked to share their learning by creating a poster board, presentation board, or power point presentation. Artwork may also be created to further display learning. Finally, students present their work to the class.

Can be done in partners. Printable Evaluation forms included!

Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a student-centered pedagogy in which students are challenged to actively learn about a subject for an extended period of time. It is a form of active learning or inquiry-based learning. Project-Based Learning is in contrast to paper-based, rote memorization, or teacher-led instruction that presents established facts. Please be aware of what you are purchasing.
