Author Study for Chris Van Allsburg and Tomie dePaola: Comparing and Contrasting Books by the Same Author

Looking for a way to teach RL 3.9? Look no further! I have now taught this unit for two years. All four classes who have used it have loved it, and are so sad when I begin putting the books away!

In this 40 page, 6-week unit you will receive the following:
-abbreviated, six-week lesson plans that can be followed exclusively or picked and chosen from to suit your needs
-posters and graphic organizer for one week of story elements and introduction to "nonliteral" language
-Introduction posters to both Chris Van Allsburg and Tomie DePaola with facts and a photograph
-organizers to fill out about each author
-graphic organizers (2 choices) for you to use while reading the suggested books as whole group or for students individually
-template for writing two paragraph essays to compare and contrast theme, plot, and settings of the books
-2 pages of nonliteral language used in books by each author
-A parent letter to introduce a personal author study
-Student project forms for completing a personal author study
-Rubric for grading personal author studies
-Blank versions of the compare/contrast documents to use with any author or in the event that you want to change a particular story from this unit.

Suggested Books:

Jumanji, Zathura, The Wretched Stone, The Widow's Broom, Probuditi and The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg

The Baby Sister, Nana Upstairs & Nana Downstairs, Oliver Button is a Sissy, The Art Lesson, The Popcorn Book, and Now One Foot, Now the Other by Tomie DePaola
