Description

In this ReadWriteThink lesson, students review several texts by one illustrator/author, practice making inferences about that author, and then check their inferences against the author's biography. They compare an inaccurate biography of that author with a correct online version to develop comparison skills. Finally, students apply these skills by writing a brief biography of an author of their choosing.
