7.22 Author's Background and Viewpoint

  • Page ID
  • Submit your paragraph(s) to the drop box.

    Remember that your focus should be a description of your author's background and how this background impacts the viewpoint or writing of book.


    In a couple of well-developed PEA-style paragraph(s) of at least 7-10 sentences each, explain your discoveries.  Consider these questions:




    • What did you find out about your author’s life?
    • How might those events have influenced the writing and core message in the book you’re reading?
    • What specific events in the text prove your point?  (Quotes are great!)
    • What other aspects of the text revealed the author's viewpoint or bias? 



     Since you are all reading different books, remember to name your author and the book. ;-)
