I used this handout to guide my 5th grade students during an author study. There is a list of 20 Authors that the students can pick one from and directions on how to use the internet to look for information on their author. Part 2 consists of developing their powerpoints there are 9 steps to creating a powerpoint. My students loved this activity and the integration of technology!
