Author's Purpose

Why do people write? Every text has a specific purpose, whether it's meant to entertain, persuade, or to educate. This lesson contains two excerpts to read with your class, having them identify the author's purpose for each. Consider tracking down a few more examples and compiling a short worksheet for your class members to complete in pairs. On the worksheet, have them list any words that helped them determine what the author's purpose was.
