Author's Purpose PIE - This is a set of task cards plus a cut-and-paste worksheet or assessment.
On each task card, students read a paragraph to determine the author's purpose. What makes these unique is that there are 3 cards on the same topic but the purpose is different. For example, one card has an entertaining story about a train. Another card gives information about trains, while a third card persuades readers to use trains as a form of travel. This allows students to compare the three forms of writing to determine the author's purpose.
