Great for teaching Author's Purpose! Product includes poster/anchor charts for all five author purposes, and a short passage with questions for each type of author's purpose, and task cards which are great for centers!
Use as little or as much as you like. If you only teach persuade, inform and entertain, then you can just use those. If you teach describe and explain also, then you can use all five! Easy to modify for different grades!
Passages are geared for 3rd-4th but can be used for 2nd in a guided teach or for 5th as an easy review or introduction into author's purpose!
