Product Description
This 4-page author's purpose practice contains 10 practice passages. I use it to give my students an opportunity to identify the author's purpose for writing a a passage. The assessment format includes matching, short answer, and multiple choice. It contains four pages, so I print the pages back-to-back and staple them into 2-page packets.

This worksheet aligns with my other upper elementary author's purpose PIE'ED resources. With this method, students are taught 5 types of author's purpose:
persuade
inform
entertain
explain
describe

I have found that this closely matches what upper elementary students will encounter on standardized tests.

I intend to use the "I Do, We Do, You Do" teaching strategy when I use this with students.
I DO- For the first two passages, I will think aloud as I model reading the passages, identifying the author's purpose, and writing a complete sentence that thoroughly explains the author's purpose. (I do not accept one-word answers.)
WE DO- For the next two passages, I will work WITH the students as we work together to read the passages and jointly identify the author's purpose.
YOU DO- For the final six passages, I will expect students to work independently to identify the author's purpose for writing each passage.
