Author Study: Patricia Polacco

I am attaching my author study on Patricia Polacco that was developed for a TeacherLine class from PBS. The study integrates technology into a regular author study. Her books are also easily integrated into social studies and science topics. The unit is best suited for 2nd-5th grade, but could be adapted for other grades. #VegasPBS-RDLA125
