Author's Purpose P.I.E.
By Erin Horner
  

1     Normally you can have cherry, apple, or pumpkin pie. Today, however, we're serving up a different kind. Today, you get a slice of author's purpose p.i.e. It might not seem as tasty, but it will help you sink your teeth into great reading material each and every day. I hope you're hungry. Let's dig into an author's purpose p.i.e.
 
2     An author always has a purpose when he or she writes a text. Sometimes the author is trying to persuade you. He wants you to agree with his opinion. Sometimes he wants to convince you to believe something. The author of an advertisement, commercial, or editorial is probably trying to persuade you to buy or do something.
 
3     When an author uses facts to teach you about a real topic, he is trying to inform you. The author of a cookbook, textbook, or encyclopedia writes text to inform you. Newspaper reporters who write articles that state information, rather than persuade you, are also writing to inform.
