The Spanish explored Mexico and Peru in the 1500s. They looted the lands they explored and filled their ships to the brim with gold and treasure. The jewels they carried back to Spain were the most beautiful in the world.

Because of their valuable cargo, the treasure ships were prey for pirates. The ships usually traveled a rout that took them through a stretch of water called “The Spanish Main.” Some pirates claimed to have captured hundreds of treasure ships there.

Author’s Purpose
  • It is important to evaluate, or make judgments about, a text you are reading. As you read, you should ask yourself which statements can be proven and which are the author’s purpose.
  • Is the author writing to entertain, to inform, or to persuade?
  • Sometimes the focus of a story is on what one character does and says. As students read the story, they should look for descriptions of the character’s traits. The author may describe the traits directly or provide clues about them from the point of view of other characters in the story. Students should look for information about the character’s thoughts, feelings, words, and actions.

make judgments
Make Judgments
  • One way to evaluate a text is to make judgments about the characters and their actions. The way that a playwright presents the characters in a play reflects the message he or she wants to get across.
  • Think carefully about what each character does and says.
  • Compare this to the way people act and speak in real life.
  • Pay close attention to the words the characters use. Ask yourself what kind of person would say something like that. How would you react is someone said these words to you?
  • Graphic organizers are always good to help you sort information. When making judgments, a Judgment Flow Chart is a good graphic organizer to use.
