An author study is a unit lesson that gives students the opportunity to delve deeply into an author's life and body of work. Whether individually, in small groups, or as a class, students can:

  • Critically evaluate an author's themes, characters, and writing style
  • Make connections between the author's life and work
  • Make personal connections between their own experiences and those of the author and his/her characters

In addition to reading several works by

an author, key components of an

author study include discussion,

research, and a final project.

There are three (3) main types of author studies.

  • The first type focuses on an author study as a "literary biography," in which students make connections between the author's life and work.
  • The second type of author study is based on the reader's "critical response" to the books, focusing on an author's themes, characters and writing, with little or no attention to the author's life.
  • The third type of author study, meanwhile, is based on the reader's own response to the books of a particular author, focusing on books can help readers relive and reflect on events in their own lives.

Research the Author

Start with the basics: the author's website and

any autobiographical material, interviews, and

speeches.

When researching authors, it can be especially

interesting to see how they have integrated

their own life and experiences into their books. 

It's always good to begin with basics, so check to see what the

author has written about his/herself. Has he/she written an

autobiography? Do they have a website? If they have won a

major award (e.g., Caldecott or Newbery Medal), check 

The HornBook, which annually publishes authors' acceptance

speeches.
