This is an author study for upper elementary students. This project, about a week long, allows students to examine and study an author through children's books.
The study requires students to gain background information about their author, then read 5-6 books by the author (children's books). I have my students doing this with a partner. Then, they examine the writing style, themes, messages, and characters of the author. EVERYTHING NEEDED FOR THIS IS INCLUDED (Graphic Organizers, Directions, Project Ideas).
The last page is a list of project options for them to compile the information they learned.
