In order to help you make your instructional choices, we have developed a Purpose Guide that shows all of the different purposes you could bring to a literary or informational text, as well as the CommonLit tools that best support each purpose. This guide also includes 16 sample lessons that model how to bring different purposes to the texts “Home” by Gwendolyn Brooks and “Alexander Hamilton” by Jessica McBirney. If you would like to plan your own lessons in our CommonLit lesson planning template, you can download your own copy here.
