PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Author's Purpose, Genre, and Informational Sources Unit is jam packed with 63 pages of activities introducing students to informational sources, genre and their related vocabulary. Once students have a firm foundation in these two areas, they easily grasp the activities relating to author's purpose. A variety of engaging and hands-on activities are included such as graphic organizers, cloze notes, foldables, sorts, and 2 projects. Three quizzes plus two modified quizzes are also included with keys. This is an inclusion friendly resource which has parallel modified worksheets for students who have more difficulty with writing tasks. Modified worksheets allow teachers to individualize in the inclusive setting while saving time in making modified classroom materials. Activities which are not labeled modified are suitable for almost all students.

Activities align with the Common Core Standards and are appropriate for grades 5-7, special education, and ESL/ELL students. This unit was designed to compliment interactive reading journals, however each of the activities can serve as a stand-alone activity, woven into any teacher's existing curriculum.

Included in this unit are the following activities:
