All of the core subjects in classes are now changing with the PA Core Standards, including writing. In elementary schools, authors no longer write to Persuade, Inform, and Entertain (PIE). Authors now write for Entertainment, Information, and Opinion (EIO). As educators, we have grown to know the "PIE" chart to help the students remember, but it cannot be used now that the terms are changing. I made an "EIO" chart based on the Old McDonald song to help students remember the new reasons why authors write.
