Do you have a favorite author? Maybe it's Roald Dahl, Beverly Cleary, Margaret Peterson Haddix, Avi, or even Lois Duncan. Why not do an author study and allow your students to choose and read a book written by one of your favorite authors?
In this packet you will receive an author study contract, a list of "jobs" for 5 different categories (including art, vocabulary, writing, comprehension, and even a challenge category), and a sample rubric to help score the "jobs" when students are completed. Teachers will be able to adjust the number of jobs for each student based on their ability levels, while students will be given the freedom to choose which jobs they will complete. ENJOY! ~SKooLGals
