Author’s Purpose and Author’s Point of View Practice Worksheets and Test

Determining the author’s purpose and point of view can be challenging for middle school ELA students. This resource provides helpful worksheets that will help your students learn how to figure out the author’s purpose and how to determine the author’s perspective.

When looking for author’s purpose activities, I found that the usual method of using PIE just wasn’t enough. So this resource starts with PIE: persuade, inform, and entertain, but then goes into many other reasons authors have for writing. Students also have to know that writer’s write to describe, instruct, compare, criticize, prove, etc. And students have to know that there is more than one way a question might be worded. For example, a test question might not say persuade; it might say “convince” or “influence.” This resource goes beyond PIE to cover everything students must practice to understand author’s purpose and point of view.

Informative bookmarks that include important information about author’s purpose and perspective will serve as reference tools for students to use while completing the worksheets. The worksheets themselves are beautifully designed and include some fun writing tasks and activities.
