Your first task this week is around AUTHOR'S PURPOSE:
- Identify why the author wrote this text and respond thoughtfully to the author’s point of view. (Why did the author choose to write this book – give your opinions / ideas).
- Think about why the author wrote this text. (What was he / she wanting to achieve by writing and publishing the text?)
- Identify inconsistencies, gaps in the information given. (Is there anything missing from the text that you think should be in there? - Be critical thinkers here).
- Ask myself questions about what the author wants me to believe and what I want to believe. (What is the author's message in the text - do you believe it? Do you agree or disagree with it??)
Get the discussion going and be critically reflective about the author's purpose.
