Author Study / Jacqueline Woodson

We have started to do an author study on Jacqueline Woodson. I hope you have your calendars marked for All Trinity Reads on Friday, March 28 when she is coming to our school! We are enjoying reading her rich stories and learning about the life of this amazing lady so that we can get as much as possible out of her visit!

Also, we will be kicking off a new unit after Spring Break where students will be selecting an author; research his/her life and influences, and read several books by the author. We will write a mini-biography, write a letter to the author (or publishing house), and do an analysis of similar themes across a range of texts. It's going to be very exciting work!
