Aussie Authors 2 follows on from the very popular Aussie Authors book, bringing together literature-based activities that explore the works of Australian authors.
It aims to provide more Australian content into classrooms through the use of activities based on the works of 20 respected Australian authors.
For each author there is a one-page biography and reading list, followed by an activity exploring one or more of the author’s works. The activities are stand-alone and teachers can choose the order in which they wish to use them.
Aussie Authors 2 is an ideal library resource, as well as a valuable and practical tool for promoting Australian Literature in the upper primary classroom.
