Product Description
************* Updated on 11/10/14 ***** I included a worksheet for the students to fill-in their responses.

Hello! I have been looking for a lesson for Veterans Day and to address author’s purpose! I could not find anything that was suitable for my students, as well as motivational and TAUGHT about what our soldiers feel and go through. I did some research and came up with this lesson.

Students will be required to determine whether or not what a ‘veteran’ (what I researched) was written to inform a reader, persuade a reader or entertain a reader, and why they believe it is such in one to two sentences. Vocabulary of inform, persuade and entertain may need to be reviewed for this lesson.

8 scenarios of writing is provided and the purpose is as follows:
1. article – to inform
2. poem – to entertain
3. letter – persuade
4. speech – inform
5. instructional pamphlet – inform
6. story – entertain
7. novel – entertain
8. advertisement - persuade

Clip-art for this lesson was purchased at Scrappin’Doodles!

Any questions about this lesson, or if you are looking for a particular lesson, please do not hesitate to contact me at chattywex@hotmail.com

Enjoy!
