Point of View

Rewrite Partner Share


Read your new version to a partner and have your partner read his/her story to you. As you listen, jot down any ideas or question that occur to you. When you have both finished reading your new version, discuss the following questions.

  • What was lost by writing in the third person?
  • What was gained by the use of third person?
  • Which version do you like best?

When you finish, share your ideas with the class. Use specific evidence from either your own writing or Poe’s to support your points.
