Let`s do some research to see who these authors are!

In pairs, prepare a lino.it with information about the writers:

-A short biography (birth and death dates + 3 important facts)

-Social and historical context (what was going on in the world)

-Group them into categories according to the period in history when they wrote (use a different colour of a sticky post for each group)

Example: War poets (blue sticky notes)

-Post this in your blogs (Also, link this post to your blogs)

Hands on!!
