Author Study

  • Author Study

    Every year our class gravitates towards an author that we can barely go a day without reading, thinking about, or trying to mimic one of their craft moves.

    Student Writers are eager to try new writerly "craft moves" once they are exposed to them, and how they can be woven into almost any piece that one is working on.  

    An author that we are looking to study is one that has:
    written many pieces
    has demonstrated a multitude of writerly craft moves
    gives back to their community

    Please visit with your author at home regarding the writer we are exploring more deeply.  Go to the local library and see how many books of theirs you can get.  Check your book shelf and see if you just happen to have some of their books already tucked in with your favorites. 

    Happy Author Study,
    Mrs. Tulley
