This is a 16 page author study resource pack. In this resource, students are able to conduct a short research report on an author of their choice. They will fill out a biography form and include information in a power point presentation. Students will also be required to read multiple books from the same author and compare and contrast books, which supports common core learning. Students will also partake in culminating activities on a book of their choice that was written by their author. Other activities include writing a letter to their author and completing a reading response on one of the author's books.
This is an in-depth project that will require critical thinking and hard work on your student's part. All instructions and directions are included, but please e-mail me if you have any questions. Thank you so much as usual and if you like the product, please follow me! :) Have a great day! Kathryn Willis
