Matching author s purpose to the structure of the text

Matching Author’s Purpose to the Structure of the Text


Think pair share

Think-Pair-Share

Certain things in life just seem

to make sense together such as:

  • Having a cake when it’s your birthday

  • Wearing a helmet when riding a bike

  • Having a camera while on vacation

  • Dressing up nice for a wedding

  • Can you think of some other things that make sense together?

  • Write down at least five things in your reading notebook.

And certain things in life just don’t seem

to make sense together such as:

  • Putting jelly on your pizza- yuk!

  • Wearing a wool coat when it’s 100 degrees out

  • Wearing sunglasses at night

  • Bringing an umbrella to an indoor baseball game

  • Can you think of some other things that don’t make sense together?

  • Write down at least five things in your reading notebook.


Think pair share2

Think-Pair-Share

Now think of one of your favorite books.

  • If you were going to try to convince someone to

  • read your favorite book by creating a poster about it, what would

  • you include on it? Take a few minutes to design a poster

  • for your favorite book in your reading notebook.

  • Be ready to share why you put what you did on your poster.


Author s purpose text structure

Author’s Purpose & Text Structure

Just like a cake at a birthday party or your movie poster, the text structure and purpose that the author uses in will make sense together. Now let’s take a closer look at:

  • Author’s Purpose

  • Text Structure

Think-Pair-Share

What are some reasons that an author

would choose to write non-fiction?


Author s purpose

Author’s Purpose

Author’s mainly write non-fiction to:

  • Persuade

  • “Saving the Dolphins of the Deep Blue Waters”

  • Inform

  • Example…

  • “Dolphins of the Deep Blue Waters”

  • Entertain

  • Example…

  • “Swimming and Talking with the Dolphins”

Non-fiction text has many different types of structure. Can you think of any? If you need help, use a non-fiction book for a reference.


Some forms of non fiction structure

Some Forms of Non-Fiction Structure

Chronological

Sequential

Description

Cause/Effect

Compare/Contrast

Can you describe these structures?


Forms of non fiction structure

Forms of Non-Fiction Structure

  • Chronological text structure is when the author uses dates and puts information in a chronological order.

  • Sequential text structure is when the author puts steps in order- sort of like how you would go about making your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Descriptive text structure is when the author describes or explains about something.

  • Cause/Effect text structure is when the author describes the effect that an event has on something else.

  • Compare/Contrast text structure is when the author compares one event or thing to another.


Good readers

Good Readers…

  • Good readers understand that the author’s reason (purpose) for writing the book should match up with the structure of the text.

  • Good readers are able to identify the structure of the text and the author’s purpose for writing it.

  • Good readers understand that an author may use more than one type of structure when writing.


Let s look closer at how the two working together

Let’s look closer at how The two working together…

  • If you picked up a book titled “Recipes from Homes Around the World”, what do you think the author’s purpose would be (entertain, persuade, or inform)?


Author s purpose1

Author’s Purpose

  • The author of the book titled, “Recipes from Homes Around the World”, would probably be writing to inform a reader about some interesting recipes from the other parts of the world.


Now let s take a look at text structure

Now Let’s take a look at text Structure…

  • In the same book, “Recipes from Homes Around

  • the World”, what do you think the author would

  • use for text structure (chronological, sequential, descriptive, cause/effect, or compare/contrast)?


Text structure

Text Structure

  • The author of the book, “Recipes from Homes Around the World”, would probably use sequential for the recipes and possibly compare/contrast for the different types of recipes found around the world.


Think pair share5

Think-Pair-Share

Think of a non-fiction book that you have read.

Can you think of what the author’s purpose was for writing it and what text structure was used?


Remember

Remember…

  • Good readers understand that the author’s reason (purpose) for writing the book should match up with the structure of the text.

  • Good readers are able to identify the structure of the text and the author’s purpose for writing it.

  • Good readers understand that an author may use more than one type of structure when writing.


Teacher read aloud

Teacher Read Aloud

Now that you understand how the author’s purpose and text structure connect, listen as your teacher reads a non-fiction text to you.

Listen as he/she models how to identify the author’s purpose and the text structure.

Listen as your teacher explains why the author chose to write the way he/she did.


Putting strategy into practice

Putting Strategy Into Practice…

For this strategy practice, you will need a non-fiction book, textbook, or classroom magazine.

In your reading notebook, draw a chart like the one below.

Write the title and author at the top of the page.

Then try to fill in the chart the best you can.
