Welcome to Author Study Unit Wiki


One of the Major Units of Study that the 6th graders do in English is their Author Study Unit. In this unit the students choose an author, read two or more books by the author, read a biography or autobiography about the author, research the author using the library databases and websites. The students then go on to complete a research paper on their author.
