Product Description
This author's purpose resource contains 24 task cards. Students read each passage, and then determine the author's purpose for writing the passage. The PIE acronym is used throughout this resource. Students determine whether the author was trying to persuade, inform, or entertain.

The first 16 task cards contain a short passage, along with this question: "What was the author's purpose for writing this passage?" The answer choices are A. persuade B. inform C.entertain

The final 8 task cards contain a longer passage, with the same question. However,
the answer choices are more thorough and a bit more complex. For example, the answer choices for card #22 are:
A. to persuade the reader to get a haircut
B. to inform the reader about ways to take care of the hair on his body
C. to inform the reader about why hair is important and how it grows

Like most of my task card sets, I have included a bonus game-like answer sheet in addition to the more traditional recording sheet.

I encourage you to take a peek at the PREVIEW!! It shows the format of the task cards.
