Author Study Project for ANY AUTHOR — Collaborative Poster


Have your students create a collaborative poster and research ANY AUTHOR in a fun, interesting way!

Your students will create an author biography for any author, and establish his/her profile on a poster after diving into his/her body of work.

There are TWO different silhouettes available in this resource.

Additionally, your students will learn the importance of collaboration and effective communication.

Project Steps:

1) To construct the author study poster, your students will work in groups to conduct research on their author.

2) Students will then transfer their findings to boxes on the poster.

3) Next, they will work together to color or paint the pieces of the poster.

4) Lastly, students will tape together the final product.

The poster is made up of six pieces of paper, which can be printed on regular copy paper or card stock.

Once taped together, the final product will be 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it!

This resource includes the following:

  • Step by Step Student Directions (PDF & editable word document)
  • Author Study Project Rubric (PDF & editable word document)
  • Author Study Graphic Organizer for Students (PDF & editable word document)
  • Blank Coloring Pages that come together as one poster. (There are 2 different versions, 6 pages each)
