The author’s purpose interactive lesson was created to help students gain an understanding of author’s purpose. The lesson allows the teacher to select any story or book to complete the lesson. By including tasks that allow teachers to select any story or book to complete the lesson, teachers can use this lesson format to teach author’s purpose to first through third grade students. Teachers can select from sixty slides to help students master author’s purpose at a higher level. The Three Little Pig and The Grasshopper and the Ants are integrated into the lesson. Science and writing are integrated into the lesson too.
