Learning Objectives
Students who understand that what they are reading has a purpose, and that the form and structure chosen by the writer assists them to fully comprehend that purpose, are more likely to be effective readers - and more likely to be effective writers, too.

  3. Procedure
  4. Explanation
  5. Persuasive Text
