STRIVE and author's purpose
We are learning to work together in groups to complete a project. We have started making strive posters in groups of 4. Each group has a different strive word they need to explain. The author's purpose is to inform.
We have been learning about author's purpose. We know that author's have three purposes for their work - to entertain, to inform and to persuade. This creates the acronym Pie.
We have looked at different types of writing and sorted the into author's purpose categories.
