I am planning on doing an author study of Chris Van Allsburg with my third graders when we return from Christmas break. I plan on focusing on inferring, the fantasy genre, and the author's craft specifically, but any input would be greatly appreciated. I have scoured the internet, and I can't find too many ideas to pull in. What have you done for author studies? Do you have any Chris Van Allsburg lessons that have been highly successful with your students? Thanks in advance!
