Point of View


The point of view of the narrator or speaker is an important literary element. Being able to identify and analyze point of view prepares students to engage with the text and dig deeply into meaning. This lesson guides students to identify point of view based on text evidence. The Point of View lesson includes a definition, an explanation of how the skill is used, an example, and practice questions with excerpts from real books.
