This is another great writing marathon for author's purpose(persuade, inform, entertain, and share)! Students will be discussing their favorite restaurants, vote, look at examples of student writing marathon pieces using the four types of author's purpose, reviewing and identifying examples in preparation for the writing marathon, completing different writing assignments/formats with each type, and sharing their examples with the class or partners! This PowerPoint presentation and writing marathon would be a great follow up to my Author's Purpose PPT that includes the background information and knowledge on each type of author's purpose! There is a Teacher Guide included with directions on how to complete the activity. The lesson and writing marathon could be easily adapted for different grade levels! Let the creative writing begin!
