This author's purpose reading activity explains author's purpose (to inform, to persuade, and to entertain). Includes a worksheet and a set of 24 task cards with answer key and recording sheet. The worksheet gives students six different author's purpose reading selections they need to identify, which you can use for guided practice or assessment. The task cards give students different types of genres and written examples of writing to identify the purpose of the author. Good for test prep for standardized testing.
