These printable, no prep task cards for the secondary student focus on: persuade, inform, and entertain. Author's Purpose practice is gained using twenty original reading selections. (Cards are used twice for a total of 40 cards.)

Based on Common Core.RI.6.6, 7.6, 8.6, and 9-10.6

Included are:

----2 SETS of 20 original Task Cards (there are 40 cards total- both sets use the same 20 passages but have different multiple choice selections. The second set is more rigorous- and most closely resembles the selections found on standardized tests. The two examples on the thumbnails show different answer options.)

----Answer sheets

----Answer keys

Set 1: Students read a selection on each card and decide if the author's purpose is to: Persuade, Inform, or Entertain.

Set 2: Students read a selection on each card and determine the author's purpose from more rigorous options, such as: A) to present an argument using facts, B) to narrate a scene using sensory details, etc.

Just print, copy, and distribute. It's that easy!

These cards are an easy way to check student comprehension, but can be used in many more ways. Try them as Entrance Tickets, Exit Tickets, Differentiation, Comprehension Check and Homework… They might also be used as a springboard for discussion of how the author accomplishes his/ her purpose.

One of my favorite ways to use is as follows:

Make copies of each slide, but do not cut apart. Each student will answer all four items on one page. The next day, as students enter the room, they will receive the next page. Continue until all answers are completed. On the fifth day, students pair up and check answers. Give students time to re-read any passages that received a different answer from their partner. Turn in for a grade.

Great for a gallery walk or SCOOT!

Have students write on the copy – or laminate the task cards and use with class after class, year after year!
