This is an official website about Jack London and his works, maintained by Sonoma State University.

In the Classroom

If you teach Jack London or any of the related literature (Service poetry, etc), this is a GREAT source to take students. Again, it is a safe and reliable source with a variety of areas to expand upon. I do like the fact that it reminds students to cite their information and tells them how to do it!

This website examines Longfellow's life and work, his homes and his family. It includes a searchable database of his poems, lesson plans for teachers, a filmography, and more. This site is divided in 7 areas: biography, his poems, works, home, family, resources for teachers, and other resources. The lessons plans in the teacher resource section are quite good, broken down into curriculum blocks. There are 21 lessons written for across-the-curriculum study in creative and solid ways. They are each geared to specific grade spans (clear in the lesson)that include not only English and literature, but composition, American history, humanities, art, fine arts, language arts, and interdisciplinary studies. A great smorgasbord for a teacher who works with early American authors!

tag(s): authors (104)

In the Classroom

Find a great lesson among the many in the Teachers section or use the site as a resource during the study of American poets. The images of Longfellow's homes and other artifacts from the Maine Historical Society would help make the 19th century more "real" on your projector or interactive whiteboard as you read the poems.

This website is Judy Blume's own site to discuss her writing, censorship, her books (with notes about the book from the author), and her life. It includes links to her blog, a For Kids section, and other websites about her biography and her books. If you teach any Judy Blume books or just know of their high interest for some of your students, this is a safe site to share about a sometimes controversial author. Ms. Blume talks about her writing and directs students (and adults) to other reputable sites about writing tips, etc. It is also a safe place for kids to express their own views about her writing to her either through email or through her blogs.

Here is the official website of a popular young adult author. S. E. Hinton burst on the literary scene with the book "The Outsiders," written when she was only 17. Her youth has always appealed to young readers, as well as her young subject matter. This is a typical official website that includes biographical information with information on her books and movies adaptations. The book pages include comments from the author and short excerpts and summaries of the works.

tag(s): authors (104), novels (31)

In the Classroom

A good source of material about the author. This site will also steer kids to her other works. The BIO will probably answer questions many of your students have about her stories and where she gets her ideas, etc.

This is a real find for anyone who teaches Card or is interested in getting students who do to write and research online.

tag(s): authors (104)

In the Classroom

There is plenty here to like. Card has made this site as user-friendly as possible and still include a wide variety of things. Clicking on the research area will give you the teacher links. Caution: there are ads on the left column and a store; however, you must register to purchase anything, so it's fairly safe at school. The site is too good to pass up because of ads, but you might want to just pull some of this yourself for your class. If you want to watch his version of "Romeo and Juliet," you must have Quicktime.

You will definitely want to include this among your authors links if you have students doing research and reports.

A very worthwhile site if you teach The Giver or any other Lowry book. This site is a sure winner for an introduction to a student author study in small groups or individually, as well.

Comments

In one of her speeches, the acceptance speech for The Giver, Lois Lowry concludes with this idea: "But each time a child opens a book, he pushes open the gate that separates him from Elsewhere. It gives him choices. It gives him freedom. Those are magnificent, wonderfully unsafe things." I work in a library, and I have loved science fiction for as long as I can remember. While putting books into the hands of children may be unsafe, it is also vital for those who read to live richer lives and learn to accept others better. (Even paralibrarians who split infinitives.)

Explore the categories on the top menu that include links to a movie trailer made from her book A Wrinkle in Time, short summaries of all her books, and teacher's reading and activity guides for working with students. The site includes lots of links that will satisfy even the most curious L'Engle fan.

Bring your classroom of readers to life as writers or just fill in some background knowledge as you approach a new book or selection in your reading series.

One great student writing prompt: Which author is most like you? Maybe even ask students to write about their own writing process on your class blog after sharing some of the interviews.

This is a great resource for teachers using Roald Dahl's books in the classroom or for librarians leading a book club! There are lesson plans you can download for his books. I expected to see interactive ways for kids to explore the plots of the books as well. However, this website doesn't offer those. Still, this is a nice website for teachers! Laurie, , Grades: 0 - 12
