This powerpoint is a review of identifying author's purpose. Each slide contains short passages that require students to read, think, and determine the correct answer to a multiple choice question.
This can be used to teach or review key words that students will encounter when answering multiple choice questions about author's purpose. It can also be a formative assessment to see if students are understanding how to determine the author's purpose.
To make this activity higher level, students could explain how they used evidence from the text to determine the author's purpose.
