Point of View

Point of View

Overview

Many students read without questioning a text or analyzing the author's viewpoint. This lesson will introduce students to recognizing point of view of the author. By reading two versions of the same tale and completing an interactive Venn diagram, students recognize that there are not only different versions of a story, but also different viewpoints to consider when reading.

Point of View

Extension activitiy includes using the graphic organizer to identify how Carl Hiaasen, the author of Flush, develops the point of view of the charcter, Noah.  Then, connect to their point of view.

Students will use this graphic organizer to determine the topic of a text, the author’s point of view of a text, provide supporting details, and state their own opinion of a text. 

This could be used with a tech tool where students can draw or type directly on the document (Nearpod, Peardeck, Seesaw, Etc.)
