This download includes 16 mini-passages to practice the author's purpose skill, 15-question mini-assessment, answer sheet, and answer key. I used these mini-passages as bell ringers, task cards, and individual assignments for students who need extra practice for this particular skill. It is also great for RTI.
I hope your students will enjoy these activities. Please leave your feedback; it is highly appreciated.
