This unit goes deeper than just the DOK 1 questions of figure out whether the author's purpose is to explain, to inform or to persuade. It asks students to explain their thinking using evidence from the text. It also uses the Tree Map, one of the Thinking Maps to help students organize their thinking. This includes worksheets, graphic organizers and exams.
