    I've always been interested in the idea of author studies, but I only have a very vague idea of how to run one at the fifth grade level.

    Have you done author studies? Who do you study and how do you do it?

    I do a Roald Dahl author study and the kids love it. They love the warped sense of humor in his books. I have a copy of it in my classroom, but don't have it an electronic copy that I can email you. Maybe once I get back into school I can get one to you.

    Great. Anyone else? Even general suggestions are helpful.
