This is a fun way for readers to read multiple texts by the same author and evaluate them against one another by giving the author a "report card". Students will keep track of at least three short stories or poems or whatever you decide by a specific author and grade them on them. This is a good tool for them to use text to text evaluation.
This could even be used for three different musicians and the music they produced or wrote or performed. It could be used in a multitude of different areas.
