PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

I created this FREE set of Author's Purpose test prep passages for teachers who want to teach their students the more advanced version of Author's Purpose: PIE'ED!

persuade
inform
entertain
explain
describe

In the past, I taught the PIE method. One year, however, I was providing testing accommodations to my ELLs by reading the test questions aloud. My heart sank when I read aloud the questions related to author's purpose. I found that the multiple choice answer options included much more than just persuade, inform, and entertain. Needless to say, I decided to make my own author’s purpose materials to use the next school year- worksheets, games, activities, and task cards – that I felt better prepared my students for the types of questions they would find on standardized tests, and that matched the lesser known “PIE’ED method.” I hope that you find this set of five passages useful, too, and your students find themselves better prepared for standardized tests.
