Product Description
Once students can determine the author's purpose of a text, it's time to take it up a notch! This exercise is a great way to get a piece of informational writing in.

Students will read ANY text of ANY genre. On a planning page, students will determine the author's purpose from options given, notate the main idea/theme of the text, and choose quotes fitting to the chosen purpose. Prompts are built-in on the planning page to get students to use appropriate transitions matching to the author's purpose. From these notes and prompts, students will formulate their paragraph. There is also a mentor text for them to refer to or for the teacher to use as part of a lesson.
