The way that QR codes will be used in my classroom is to help students get to know the author

of a specific book that they are reading, which will also help readers know what was going on in
the world during the time that the book was written according to the age of the author. In order
for this to be turned into an activity, after each student has finished reading their novel and the
QR codes readings about the author. After completing that, they will then create their own QR
code and link it to an autobiography about themselves and a writing piece that theyve created in
the past in my classroom. This activity encompasses the common core standards listed below.

The connection for the following standard is that the students are able to understand the authors
choices for the novel. By using the QR code on the back of the book, the student will be able to
explore the authors identities, what era the author wrote the book in, and maybe even watch an
interview of the author.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.5

Analyze how an author's choices concerning how to structure a text, order events within it (e.g.,
parallel plots), and manipulate time (e.g., pacing, flashbacks) create such effects as mystery,
tension, or surprise.

The connection for the following standard is that the students are able to read more about another
cultures through an authors perspective. Most of the books that we will be reading in my
classroom will be written by authors that are from outside the United States, which will help
learners draw on a wide reading of world literature.

CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.9-10.6

Analyze a particular point of view or cultural experience reflected in a work of literature from
outside the United States, drawing on a wide reading of world literature.
