    Skill: Author's Purpose

    What is this skill? The author's purpose is what the author is trying to convey: to inform, to persuade, or to entertain.

    Why is this important? It matter's because understanding not only the "why" the author wrote the story but the "how" the author wrote the story tunes us in to what we should know by the end of the text. Essentially, understanding the reason behind the writing will help with the understanding of the writing. It gets your mind focused on what you will be reading.
