This slideshow contains six diverse passages for whole-class modelling and/or guided reading focused specifically on the author's purpose and text types strategies.
It includes a:
- Procedural Text
- Information Text
- Short Narrative
- Persuasive Text
- Fiction and Non-Fiction, as well as Realistic Fiction and Procedural Fiction
Perfect for practicing a strategy for which it can be difficult to locate whole-class models given that you require different short texts to efficiently portray the full range of types and purposes to your students.
