This powerpoint presentation will help you guide your students though Author's Purpose. Originally designed for my 6th grade ESL language arts students, this powerpoint has been used with ESL and mainstream classes in grades 4-8.
Aligned with CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RI.6.6.
Covers the three main purposes for writing, has some examples for students to see and then some practice questions. Comes with a set of Cloze notes for students to fill in during the presentation to ensure that they are staying engaged.
