Rockstar Authors is an exciting way to get your students interested in different authors and different book genres! Students will be researching famous authors to learn more about them. You will start out with a certain amount, then slowly "cut" authors throughout the duration of this activity. After reading an excerpt from one of their most famous books, students will "vote" and cut three authors from the list. Students will be put into four groups and will eventually create a proposal as to why their author is the best. At the end, there will be debate on who the Rockstar Author of the classroom is!
