FREEBIE!! If your students are like mine, they sometimes have trouble determining the author's purpose for different types of text. Feel free to use this Author's Purpose Checklist to help support them with this tricky skill! I just gave my students counters to use for the yes or no answer choices.
This is a wonderful tool that works with any type of informational or non-fiction text. This resource is Common Core aligned and was created for upper grades. Students are scaffolded through this response sheet.
