Your Tasks

In order to fulfill your United Nations mission, your team will gather information about an author from another country. To do this you will:

  • Visit the Internet sites about children's authors.
  • Interview your authors, if possible, by email, chat, or snail mail.
  • Find other teachers on your campus who can provide you with information about foreign authors.
  • Visit the school or public library to get the book you have chosen by that author.
  • Read the book.
  • Write a biography of your author. Be sure to include a list of all books written by the author.
  • Create an artistic depiction of a selection.
  • Create a PowerPoint, HyperStudio, or other multimedia presentation to share with your class.
  • Keep a daily reflection journal to describe your feelings, impressions, questions, and comments as you research authors.
