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.
How did the prompts take you on a journey of thought about the author’s intentions?
What’s your plan for teaching students how to use these prompts to develop hunches about an author’s writing?
