This is a set of 24 author's purpose task cards.
There is one paragraph on each card. Students must identify the author's purpose.
These cards cover the 3 main reasons an author writes:
There is an answer key for the teacher included on page 8.
There is an answer recording sheet for students on page 9.
There are a variety of ways these cards can be used. There is a list of options in page 1 of the document.
This set of cards can also immediately be turned into a station by punching holes in the corner of the cards and placing them on a ring. This is a good way for students to get to spiral review content that was previously covered, and for students to assess their own mastery.
