Author Studies: January Famous Author Birthdays PowerPoint. To engage your readers, show them the slides on these famous authors who had birthdays in January:
Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Sharon Robinson (Jackie Robinson's daughter)
Edgar Allan Poe
Each slide tells a little about the classic author and their most famous works. This winter, when students return from Christmas break, engage them in reading and writing! Have them choose from three writing assignments about these authors and their works on the last slide.
