This product will help your students produce a foldable to remember author’s purpose. There are 4 types: persuade, inform, entertain, describe. My students use this in an interactive notebook, but you could use it on paper alone as well to hang in the hallway. I use this activity after an introductory lesson to author’s purpose. I then have the students glue in the fact cards on their own as a type of formative assessment. Author's purpose, easy as P.I.E.D.!
