This is a fascinating biography of E.B. White, fresh off the presses. It is easy for students, as they hear this story as teachers read, or they read it themselves, to find the simplicity and passions of a man’s life in the stories that he writes. Although the packet I created accompanies this particular biography of E.B. White, it could very well be the beginning of an author’s study of three of E.B. White’s books – Stuart Little, Charlotte’s Web, and The Trumpet of the Swan. This packet includes reading comprehension strategies, activities, and meaningful writing assignments. It also includes research of a Trumpeter Swan. Most of all, students will be able to relate E.B. White’s life to the classic stories he wrote. Hopefully, they will also learn some of the elements of writing, as described through E.B. White’s words.
