MATCHING AUTHORS PURPOSE TO THE STRUCTURE OF THE TEXT
THINK-PAIR-SHARE Certain things in life just seem to make sense together such as: Having a cake when its 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.
THINK-PAIR-SHARE And certain things in life just dont seem to make sense together such as: Putting jelly on your pizza- yuk! Wearing a wool coat when its 100 degrees out Wearing sunglasses at night Bringing an umbrella to an indoor baseball game Can you think of some other things that dont make sense together? Write down at least five things in your reading notebook.
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.
AUTHORS 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 lets take a closer look at: Authors Purpose Text Structure
THINK-PAIR-SHARE What are some reasons that an author would choose to write non-fiction?
AUTHORS PURPOSE Authors mainly write non-fiction to: Persuade Example… Saving the Dolphins of the Deep Blue Waters Inform Example… Dolphins of the Deep Blue Waters Entertain Example… Swimming and Talking with the Dolphins If you have time, watch this 5-minute video to help understand Authors Purpose http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUOK4fMCsoQ
THINK-PAIR-SHARE 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 Chronological Sequential Description Cause/Effect Compare/Contrast Can you describe these structures?
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 understand that the authors 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 authors purpose for writing it. Good readers understand that an author may use more than one type of structure when writing.
LETS 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 authors purpose would be (entertain, persuade, or inform)?
AUTHORS 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 LETS 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 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-SHARE Think of a non-fiction book that you have read. Can you think of what the authors purpose was for writing it and what text structure was used?
REMEMBER… Good readers understand that the authors 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 authors purpose for writing it. Good readers understand that an author may use more than one type of structure when writing.
TEACHER READ ALOUD 1.Now that you understand how the authors purpose and text structure connect, listen as your teacher reads a non-fiction text to you. 2.Listen as he/she models how to identify the authors purpose and the text structure. 3.Listen as your teacher explains why the author chose to write the way he/she did.

PUTTING STRATEGY INTO PRACTICE… 1.For this strategy practice, you will need a non-fiction book, textbook, or classroom magazine. 2.In your reading notebook, draw a chart like the one below. 3.Write the title and author at the top of the page. 4.Then try to fill in the chart the best you can.
