Up Close With The Author

Students listen to the teacher read a book entitled, Hoot by Carl Hiaasen. In groups, students create KWL charts concerning the book, the author, and the author's writing style. In groups, students research topics about the book and its author. They write personal letters to Mr. Hiaasen which pose questions to the author. Students share their letters with their peers. Additional activities are listed in the lesson plan.

I train teachers pre-K-12 to use the arts to teach any subject (arts integration). Lesson Planet has given me some great ideas to share as we all attempt to make the arts an important part of every child's education.
