author s purpose and perspective
Author’s Purpose and Perspective

The author’s purpose may be to entertain, inform, or persuade. The author’s perspective is the author’s opinion or attitude about a topic. To determine the author’s perspective, you need to figure out how the author feels about the subject and why he or she is expressing this attitude. Good readers look for clues in a story that will help them determine the author’s purpose and perspective.

Read the following paragraphs and complete the charts.

Author’s Perspective 1

What fun it would be to drive a big truck! Just imagine yourself in charge of a giant eighteen-wheeler, driving across the country. You would see new scenery every day and get to know the whole United States. The freedom and excitement of the open road would be yours!

Author’s Perspective 2

The life of a long-distance truck driver is a life of danger, boredom, and loneliness. Drivers face danger every day on the road, where a moment’s carelessness can cause a wreck. At the same time, it is boring to drive day after day along endless, bare stretches of highway. Truck drivers face loneliness, too, when they are separated from their families for long periods.

Negative, sees bad points

To persuade

Gloomy, serious

use decoding phonics
Use Decoding/Phonics

Good readers use decoding/phonics to help them read unfamiliar words. This strategy will help you sound out an unfamiliar word. If you still have trouble, you can look up the word in a dictionary. If you are trying to determine the author’s purpose and perspective, you need to know exactly what the text says.

slide10

The American cowboy is a symbol of the strength and vigor of the Old West. The cowboys had to be excellent riders and ropers. As skilled as they were, they frequently suffered broken bones as a result of spills from their horses.

  • The cowboys worked long hours, usually for very low wages, riding the range and herding cattle to market. Their lives were often lonely, and they had to learn to survive on little food and sleep.
  • The author probably wrote this passage to:
      • entertain with a story about cowboys.
      • persuade others to become cowboys.
      • give facts about herding cattle.
      • explain why the cowboy is a symbol of strength and vigor.
  • How does the author probably feel about cowboys?
      • He admires them for their strength and endurance.
      • He envies their skills.
      • He considers them to be over-glorified.
      • He regrets their disappearance.

characterization
Characterization
  • Paying attention to each character’s words, motives, and actions will help you understand and enjoy the story.
  • Motives are the character’s goals or reasons for doing something.
  • Noticing how the characters react to each other can make them seem more real and will make the story more interesting and clearer.
  • Reread the first two paragraphs on page 569.

characterization13
Characterization
  • Mrs. Granger says that many new words need to be made. This tells me that she wants her students to learn more words than what they find in a dictionary. I think Mrs. Granger is smart and dedicated to encouraging her students to be creative and informed.
