Product Description
This high-interest resource project is designed for middle and high school students. Students will first select a young adult author to research. After conducting research, students will showcase their knowledge by creating an interactive research-based Young Adult Author eBook using Google Slides!

This project can be implemented at any point during the school year – including during a unit focusing on biographies, autobiographies, or memoirs – and is an ideal resource for Google Classroom, OneDrive, and for schools with 1:1 devices!

Students assume more ownership over their learning when given choices! For this research project, students will choose the young adult author that they would like to learn more about!

A student project sheet is provided for this resource. This handout includes a list of 80+ top-selling, popular young adult authors! Students can select from the list of suggestions or choose an author on their own!

Research links have also been provided to the authors' websites, video links to young adult author interviews, podcasts featuring popular YA authors, and more!

Students can also use the included digital note-taking handout with guided research prompts.

Included with this resource are multimedia links and ideas on how to select and search for relevant media for the students’ Young Adult Author’s eBooks – such as suggestions for searching for official book trailers and how to locate a song that could represent one of the author’s books according to the book’s conflicts and overarching theme.

Students will use Google Slides in order to create an interactive eBook – with each slide representing an eBook page. By linking multimedia, eBook readers will be able to interactively click on links in order to learn more about the featured author.
Specific suggestions and guidelines are provided for the content to be included on each of the eBook’s “pages.”

Students will save and publish their research-based Young Adult Author eBook by downloading their slides as a pdf file.

The following materials are included with this purchase:

★ A pdf file with Google Drive share links for each resource;
★ Directions on how to access the resource links, how to share the resources using Google Classroom, how to download all materials in a Microsoft Office compatible format, how to upload the resources into OneDrive, and directions on how to print the handouts;
★ A modern, attractive Young Adult Author Research project webpage (created using the NEW Google Sites) with project directions, suggested research links, and pictures of famous young adult authors throughout;
★ A Google Site subpage on MLA source documentation (the most updated 8th edition) with source documentation examples;
★ A Young Adult Author Note-Taking Handout with guiding research prompt to encourage note-taking NOT copying/pasting;
★ Instructions with screenshots on how students can hyperlink multimedia links in order to make the eBook interactive;
★ Directions for students with screenshots on how to save and publish the Young Adult Author eBook as a pdf file;
★ A detailed Implementation Guide with Teacher Notes;
★ a Final eBook Project Teacher’s Grading Rubric.

The Young Adult Author project website and the Student Project Sheet provide students with clear directions and will ensure that they will be able to complete this project from start to finish through a very structured and organized process.

*Most schools do not filter Google Sites – however, each school network is unique. Please note that your students will need to be able to access a Google Site in order to complete this project.

Are you unsure as to whether your students can access Google Sites created outside of your school network?

Let a student try accessing this test link using your school network prior to purchasing this resource:

https://sites.google.com/view/test-page-site/

If students cannot access this link, the project webpage will also need to be unblocked by your network administrator in order for students to fully benefit from this resource!

If you can access the test link using a school device, you should also be able to view and use the Google Site created for this project!

Foster both creative and critical thinking skills with this high-interest research project and Google Apps eBook activity!
