Product Description
This graphic organizer is intended to be used to analyze the author's purpose for writing a text - beyond the traditional "to inform," "to entertain," and "to persuade."

The poster and sentence starter pages can be used to instruct and scaffold.

I also created a "bookmark" version (the last page) that can be printed, cut, and laminated for students to use independently!

Suggestions for instruction:
~ After introducing the book and instructing on vocabulary, choose a chapter to focus on as a group.
~ Purpose for reading: We are going to read this chapter to determine if the author is trying to describe something to us, explain how something happened, or explain why something happened.
~ After students read, use the text and heading to determine the topic of the chapter (for example, how salamanders hunt).
~ Discuss what you think the author is trying to teach you - is the author describing salamanders? explaining how they hunt? explaining why they hunt?
~ After determining a purpose that is reasonable, task students with searching through the chapter for details that directly support this purpose.
