Firstly, For this reason I’m sure you could just do a review and some analysis of a concept or two in the book and make it by.
Secondly, What you would need to read is Siddhartha by Hermann Hesse, or you could just read a summary of it I don’t care.
Before beginning the reading, plan a unit in which you talk with students about basic literary concepts, such as plot, character, setting, etc.
You also can talk with students about the concept of literary style,
as well as the idea that clues about an author often can be found in his/her work.
If the author works in the picture book form, talk with students about the important balance between text and artwork.
Finally, introduce students to the notion of an aesthetic response to books,
suggesting that they keep track of how they themselves are feeling about what they read.
As you begin reading, decisions you made earlier will determine how you do this segment of an author study.
For example, if you’re doing a classroom-wide author study,
you’ll need to decide when you’re going to schedule in read-aloud time during your day.
(The great thing about author studies, though, is how they can fit into any curriculum unit.)
If you’re dividing your class into different groups to study different authors or different books by the same author,
you’ll want to figure out how to create those groups.
Or, if each student is doing his/her own author study,
you’ll want to try to set aside at least some silent reading time during the day.
In the case of either group or individual reading, you’ll want to have checkpoints where you can see how students are coming in their reading.
Ask students to keep a journal as they read.
The journal can be used to record facts about the author, thoughts about characters, plot and setting,
and students’ own reflections on issues raise by the books they are reading.
The journals also are useful when students begin to research the author.
Think about whether you will require students to keep the journals for grading purposes
or just for referring to when they do their author study project(s).
Think also how you will store the notebooks in the classroom.
One possibility is to create storage baskets to house both the students’ notebooks and the books be read.
