Target Skill: Author’s Purpose – As the students read, they will think about the author’s purpose for writing. Is it to inform, to persuade, or to entertain readers? They will look for text evidence about the topic and think about the author presents her ideas to identify her purpose.

Target Strategy: Summarize – As the students read, they will pay close attention to the main ideas and events. Then they wil retell these ideas in their own words to summarize the text.
