Author’s Purpose: Multiple Choice

Author’s Purpose: Multiple Choice

Identifying the author’s purpose is as easy as P-I-E with the right mnemonic device! In this worksheet, children will discover three main reasons why authors write: to persuade, to inform, or to entertain. They will then evaluate two short texts by answering multiple choice questions. Designed for second graders, this comprehensive worksheet supports students as they learn to use context clues to identify an author's purpose.
