Day 3: Creating theories about why authors write like they do

Challenge: Study a portion of a favorite text. Use one of the prompts from each section to develop a theory about why an author wrote in a particular way.

What’s your plan for teaching students how to use these prompts to develop hunches about an author’s writing?
