This resource is perfect to help students investigate Author's purpose! The recording sheet can be used along with an Author's Purpose "PIE or PIE(ED) tasting" in which students read either online, newspaper, or magazine articles, or books and determine their author's purpose for writing the piece. Students will also record a description of the text as well as what clues helped them determine the purpose.
