Jason Reynolds Author Study | Body Biography | Collaborative Poster


Have your students create a collaborative poster and learn about Jason Reynolds in a new and engaging way!

Your students will create an author biography by researching Jason Reynolds and establishing his profile on a poster.

Students will learn about Jason Reynolds’s life and his body of work as a legendary author.

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

This is perfect for any unit on Jason Reynolds’ work, such as: Ghost, Long Way Down, All American Boys, or Look Both Ways.


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

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 roughly 28″ x 15″ and can last a lifetime if you laminate it!
