Shared learning and teaching
- What do the children know about the work of an author? Do authors only work in one genre? Do they know how a text moves from writing a draft to final publication?
- Have they heard of Anita Ganeri? Look at the book list, at the covers shown in the biography section, or display any of her books you have in school. Discuss their genre types.
- Explain that you are going to carry out an author study. Elicit the sorts of things they will want to find out in order to study this author well.
