Good readers summarize. As they read, they pause to sum up the important ideas or events.

This helps them remember the information.

As you read a story, note the main events.

After you read, ask yourself what the main events were and in what order they occurred.

Author’s Purpose

An author may have more than one purpose

within a story. You will often be

asked question about why an author includes

what he or she does in a story.

The author’s purpose is the reason or reasons the author has for writing.

An author may write to persuade, to inform, to entertain, or to express ideas and feelings.

confronted. This is the climax

of a story.

Story structure is like a pattern

that stories follow.

In the beginning, you have a

problem or goal established.

Finally you have an outcome

and the problem is resolved.

Next, there is rising action that

builds toward the climax.
