If you teach in Texas you know that Author's purpose is NOT as easy as PIE!
A couple of years ago, I noticed my student's were struggling with author's purpose on benchmarks. This didn't make sense because they did well when we did PIE practices in class. So, I started digging to see how it was being tested. And that's when I had a AHA moment! My teacher heart soared!
It's the WAY that students are asked author's purpose questions that was tripping my kids up! Since then I've been revamping my author's purpose lessons to get my kids ready for the test.
Students will start with what they know - PIE! Those are, in fact, the three main writing styles, and I don't want them to think their whole educational life is a lie! Once you've got them where you want them - BAM! Author's Purpose in a whole new light!
