  • Slide 2 - What is Author’s Purpose? An author is a person who wrote something. A purpose is a reason for doing something. The author’s purpose is the reason why someone wrote something.
  • Slide 3 - Purposes for Writing There are three main purposes for writing: Entertain Inform Persuade You will learn about each of these.
  • Slide 4 - To Entertain Writing texts to give readers enjoyment. Examples: A story about a kid overcoming bullies A poem about bullying A play about a bully losing his friends Stories, poems, and plays may teach a lesson, but the author’s main purpose is to entertain.
  • Slide 5 - To Inform Writing texts to provide information Examples A set of directions to create a bird house An article about the habits of a rare bird A report predicting the day’s weather Some directions, articles, and reports may be entertaining, but the author’s main purpose is to inform.
  • Slide 6 - To Persuade Writing text to influence the reader Examples A flyer saying vote “no” on proposition 54 An commercial for foot cream An letter pleading for forgiveness Be careful. A text that is written to persuade may also be entertaining or informative, like a funny commercial.
  • Slide 7 - How to Find the Author’s Purpose Ask yourself, “Is it a story, poem, or play? ” If so, it was probably written to entertain. Ask yourself, “Is the text teaching me about something or showing me how to do something?” If so, it was probably written to inform. Ask yourself, “Is this text trying to get me to do something?” If so, it was probably written to persuade.
  • Slide 8 - Practice Take out a separate sheet of paper. I will project short descriptions of texts on to the board. You will determine what is most likely the author’s main purpose in writing the text. You will write your answer on your paper. We will discuss our answers when everyone has had a chance to answer.
