A simple activity for young readers, this introduces the idea of author purpose. Learners analyze various types of texts (newspaper articles, magazines, books, advertisements, etc.) and determine if the author's purpose for writing was to inform, persuade, or entertain the reader. In the end, pupils will be assessed on their ability to identify the main purpose of various texts with a matching game.
