Life in Letters

Students explore the relationship between an author's life and their work. Students research the historical and personal events surrounding a Nobel Prize winning author and how they are reflected in the author's writing. They create a timeline that makes the connection among his or her life, local and world events during his or her lifetime, and text publication dates. Students write short stories revealing the influence of their homelands.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
