When I’m teaching my ELA students how to annotate text, I’m teaching them to look for the author’s purpose. When students have a clear understanding of author’s purpose, they have a much easier time dissecting the text.
This resource may be used as a presentation for your whiteboard, or shared with groups of students who are working collaboratively.
Included in this product:
*What is Author’s Purpose, using the P.I.E. graphic organizer.
* A speech, fable, poem, and two news articles are included for student to practice determining author’s purpose.
* Questions to incite critical thinking are included after all five texts.
