Reread

5th Grade ~ Unit 1, Week 5

Rereading can help students better understand a persuasive text.

BEGINNING

Rereading the beginning of a persuasive text can help students identify the author's point of view or position on a topic or issue. Many authors present their point of view in the opening paragraph or paragraphs.


MIDDLE

Rereading the middle of the persuasive text can help students identify the reasons the author gives to support his or her point of view as well as the evidence he or she includes to support those reasons.

END

Rereading the end of the persuasive text can help readers review the author's point of view. Authors often restate their point of view in the conclusion and try to leave the readers with a lasting impression.
