How To Do An Author Study with Templates | DIGITAL & PRINT



Looking for a fun and creative way to help your students DIGITALLY or in a PRINTABLE version, explore an author for any novel study? In this lesson plan, you will have your students exploring ANY AUTHOR for ANY NOVEL STUDY in 5 different stations or rotations. This can be done independently, in partners, or in groups!  Students will develop an understanding of the author who wrote the novel/book they are currently reading, what other books they’ve written, evaluate themes and characters about the book tied to the author’s life, and connect to the author on a personal level.
The 5 topics (stations/rotations) your students will be exploring are:
  1. About the Author
  2. What Books Did He/She Write
  3. Evaluate Themes and Characters
  4. Connect Author’s Life and Work
  5. Connect to the Author on a Personal Level
This lesson can be delivered in many different ways depending on how you teach & your classroom routine, including moving around the classroom rotation style, in partners, or groups, each student filling in the worksheets independently, or one scribe in partners or groups. This lesson can also work great digitally separating into google meets or zoom breakout rooms while students are working on google classroom or their individual google slides.
Each station comes in 3 different styles of the worksheet for differentiated instruction.  This can help when students need modified worksheets when on individualized program plans, or for any individual student needs.
