This Author Study/Book Report encompasses all of the standards - reading, writing, speaking and listening. It is very engaging for middle school students and is broken down so it can be easily managed by the teacher.
The unit is designed for middle school students. Students make a scrapbook or file folder as the final project, however, it can modified to some other form such as a Power Point or poster for the final project. If you want it adapted to the PowerPoint version it is available for purchase as a PPT project on TpT under the title "Author Study Power Point Middle School".
We use the Author Study for an entire marking period since students are asked to read two books. However, it can easily be adapted to a shorter period of time by not using all the components of the study.
What you will be buying includes the following:
Student commitment/parent approval form
Guided author research paper
Book report forms
Directions for the final project
Book Rating Listening Guide
When you have purchased this unit I can e-mail you an example of the project done as a PowerPoint (I have not figured out how to add two things to a listing, when I do figure it out I will adjust the listing).
Good luck and I hope you enjoy this unit - I presented it at a reading conference and most of the teachers who teach reading in my building use it.
