CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.2.6Identify the main purpose of a text, including what the author wants to answer, explain, or describe.
Authors always have purposes for why they are writing. Authors are either trying to persuade their reader to believe one way or another. They may also be informing and providing their reader facts about an important event or idea. Another purpose may be to entertain their reader.
I would love for you to visit this website. It gives a bit more information about the author's purpose for writing something. It also gives you practice to determine if the author's purpose was to entertain, inform, or persuade. Try your best!
Please type up three small paragraphs where you will demonstrate each purpose: to persuade, inform, and entertain your audience. You can type it up in a Google Doc and share it with me.
