There are 11 slides
Slide 1: Students will come up with examples of different types of writing and then type their answers into the correct section of the PIE. For example, a newspaper article is inform. I did insert text boxes in each section. You can delete them if you would like students to insert their own.
Slide 2: Identical to slide 1 except students are supposed to search Google Images to find pictures to insert into each section.
Slide 3: There are 3 columns, one for each type of AP. Students will read the boxes at the bottom and move the phrase into the correct column.
Slide 4: Students will read 3 different paragraphs and then move the correct author’s purpose into the box underneath the paragraph.
Slides 5-11: These slides are short passages. Students will need to read the passage, use the highlighter strip to highlight words or phrases that provide clues to the AP. Then they will check the AP for the passage and type a sentence to explain their thinking.
Slide 5 is an example to show students how to complete these slides. You can delete it if you want or use it with the whole class to show students what they need to do.
Slides 6-11 are the passages. There are 2 passages for each purpose.
