This innovative series is designed to help primary teachers plan focused sessions on the work of popular, well-loved and valued authors, both classic and contemporary. Each book contains a range of activities for use directly in the classroom, covering biographical information about the author, a review of the author's work and a summary of major themes in his/her key texts, key language features of the author, frameworks to help children analyze, evaluate and compare texts, and to develop personal opinions of authors' works, ideas for writing modeled on or developed from key texts, speaking and listening opportunities, drama and role play ideas, and references to video, CD-ROM, websites and ICT activities. Inside each book is a full-color pullout poster illustrating the work of the author, which also has a set of challenges for children on the back. First published in the 1900s, Edith Nesbit's classic stories - including tales about the Bastable family, Five Children and It, The Treasure Seekers and The Railway Children - are still very popular indeed. This book presents activities on which to build a study of E. Nesbit's work, including: developing philosophical discussions on a variety of topics, ideas for writing - both narrative and non-narrative, ways of encouraging children to analyze text through devising games for others to play, promoting research skills - including critical reflection on internet use, investigating changes in language, comparing televisual and written versions of text, and work on cross-curricular themes, including history and geography.
