1) J.K. Rowling, Her Life and Times is designed as a multi-purpose informational reading and writing unit for upper elementary students. This resource is a good supplement to use as a introduction to or while teaching one of Rowling’s novels, but can also be used as a nonfiction reading resource.

Each of the three passages can be used alone (but in sequence): they could be assigned as the teacher wishes: in class over a couple of days or more, as homework, as independent projects, etc. The two texts are chronological:
Part 1 is titled “J.K. Rowling’s Childhood”, Part 2 “Jo as a Young Adult”, and Part 3 “J.K. Rowling, Author”.

Each text has a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) as well as a page of vocabulary and language use work and a short creative writing assignment.

Also included is a short quiz that consists of six multiple-choice questions and one short answer question.


2) Roald Dahl, His Life and Times:. this resource is a good supplement to use as a introduction to or while teaching one of Dahl’s novels. Roald Dahl is the author of many popular children's novels including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Matilda, James and the Giant Peach, The Witches, The Magic Finger, and The BFG.

Roald Dahl lived an interesting life, from his childhood as the son of Norwegians living in Wales, to his heroic exploits during WWII and then working as a friendly spy in Washington, to the tragic losses he endured as a family man - not to mention his phenomenal success as a children's writer.

The two texts are chronological; Part 1 is titled “Young Roald Dahl” and Part 2 “Roald Dahl: Adventurer and Author”. Each passage is one page in length and includes an illustration.

Each text has a page of questions (inference, factual, and opinion) as well as a page of vocabulary and language use work and a short creative writing assignment. There is a also one-page cloze activity using the twelve vocabulary words from Parts 1 and 2 (introduced in the work sheet for each part) as well as a short quiz that consists of six multiple-choice questions and one short answer question.

Each of the two texts can be used alone (but in sequence): they could be assigned as the teacher wishes, in class over a couple of days or more, as homework, as independent projects, etc.
