Author´s purpose is one of the more difficult units in Writing Workshop. As a teacher I choose to create a writing project that would appeal to my students´ favorite author. I choose to have students write a biography on their favorite author. Students are asked to research and write four chapters on an author of their choice, from a provided list. Students are given specific instructions on how to research, information they are looking for, and how to structure the writing assignment.
Included in Packet:
1. Directions to project
2. List of popular authors for students to choose from
3. List of online resources that are tailored to the authors given
4. Graphic organizer
3. Example of a written response
