“Author Studies are a powerful teaching tool. There is no better way to turn kids on to reading than to build a community joined by a great book. The goal of an author study is to make a connection between a book and an author’s life. This shows children that authors are real people, develops motivation to seek out other work by the same author and hopefully inspires children to write.” Readinglady.com In this class you will learn about various authors and ways to use author studies in your classroom. You will learn how to Skype with authors and have author visits. Lessons will be created to use in your own classroom. So meet a good author today and get your students into reading and writing!
