These self-checking task cards for author's purpose challenge students to read clues, make an inference about the described authors' purpose for writing (to persuade, inform, or entertain), record their answer (3 differentiated levels of answer documents included
), and then check themselves using the QR code. Each QR code links to a labeled PHOTO showing the correct author's purpose, which takes these QR code task cards to a whole new level of engagement and support for visual learners and ELLs.
My energetic students love when I tape these author's purpose task cards around the room to let them MOVE while practicing determining PIE (persuade, inform, entertain). This activity is based on 4th grade ELA standards.
What if I don't have a way to scan the QR codes?
