An Example of an Author Study

The students did author studies this year as detailed here.  To be fair I decided to create my own author study on one of my favorite authors, Neil Gaiman, so here it is.

  1. Pernille,This looks great, and what a fun way of making an author study. Do you think that learning about Neil Gaiman as an author changed/improved the way you read his books? Did you effect you as a writer?I think I might try creating such an author study with my kids. As always, thanks for the creative and exciting ideas.Erin

  2. Hi Erin,I think it helped me appreciate him more, however, following his blog has done that as well. When you are able to add the "personal" side to a writer they seem even more magical i feel. I loved this project because my students had choice within class decided requirements and their final projects turned out excellent, mine paled in comparison truly.
