  30. Discovering Purpose! This can be challenging -sharpen your listening

  31. Look at the cartoon: purpose

  32. ACT Commercial Break The author's purpose is basically the reason he or she chose to act in a particular way, whether that's writing the passage, selecting a phrase, using a word, etc. It differs from the main idea in that author's purpose not the point you're supposed to get; it's the why behind the author’s picked pen or selected words in the first place. If you're trying to determine the author's purpose on a standardized test, your question may look something like this:

  33. 1. The author most likely mentions the Depression in lines 33 - 34 to: A. identify the primary purpose for Social Security. B. criticize FDR's adoption of a program that would run out of money. C. contrast the effectiveness of the Social Security Program with that of family care. D. list another factor that contributed to the need for the Social Security Program.

  34. Recognizing Purpose Requires More Thought Are you up to the challenge?

  35. Hubble What do you need to know Since the earliest days of astronomy, since the time of Galileo, astronomers have shared a single goal — to see more, see farther, see deeper. The Hubble Space Telescope's launch in 1990 sped humanity to one of its greatest advances in that journey. Hubble is a telescope that orbits Earth. Its position above the atmosphere, which distorts and blocks the light that reaches our planet, gives it a view of the universe that typically far surpasses that of ground-based telescopes. Hubble is one of NASA's most successful and long-lasting science missions. It has beamed hundreds of thousands of images back to Earth, shedding light on many of the great mysteries of astronomy. Its gaze has helped determine the age of the universe, the identity of quasars, and the existence of dark energy.

  36. What is NSA • Snowden, an ex-NSA systems analyst, is accused of leaking details about highly secretive government surveillance programs. He spent several weeks in the transit zone of a Moscow airport before being granted asylum for a year.

  37. What is NSA? • What’s the problem?

  38. NSA-Hubble Telescope Look at the cartoon and think to yourself, What does the cartoon mean?

  39. What are the contrasts?

  40. What comparisons can you make?

  41. Remember this: The author's purpose is basically the reason he or she chose to act in a particular way, whether that's writing the passage, selecting a phrase, using a word, etc. It differs from the main idea in that author's purpose not the point you're supposed to get; it's the whybehind the author picking up a pen or selecting those words in the first place.

  42. Think of the why?

  43. Pesky Purpose questions-why 1. The author most likely portrays the Hubble to: A. identify the primary purpose for NSA (National Security Agency) B. criticize Edward Snowen as a whistle- blower C. contrast the purpose of NSA with what the agency has been doing D. list another factor that contributed to the need for the National Security Agency

  44. Turn and talk/Let’s talk Why do you think readers, viewers and consumers should understand PURPOSE?

  45. Now back to the dramas

  46. Plot and Jot-write for 5 minutes Explain the author’s purpose in each drama, and show how the characters’ traits help develop this purpose

  47. Discount Double Check Explain the author’s purpose in each drama, show how the characters’ traits help develop this purpose

  48. Discount Double Check Explain the author’s purpose in each drama, show how the characters’ traits help develop this purpose

  49. Turn and Discuss • Discuss the following with a person at your table • What was Arthur Miller’s purpose? • How did John Proctor develop Miller’s purpose? • What was Frank Darabont’sPurpose? • How did Peter Appleton develop Darabont’s purpose?

  50. Revisit and write • Discuss the following with a person at your table • What was Arthur Miller’s purpose? • How did John Proctor develop Miller’s purpose? • What was Frank Darabont’sPurpose? • How did Peter Appleton develop Darabont’s purpose?
