Reflection: Online Resources Using Pronouns to Analyze Point of View - Section 2: Point of View Reference Sheet


Point of view is a difficult concept for middle schoolers.  Staying consistent within a point of view is also difficult.  Multiple examples from different sources can help.

Here's a link to a PowerPoint from Purdue Owl website on point of view with examples of effective use, ineffective use, and also the difference between passive and active voice.

This document (it's a PDF of a Word document) has a brief reminder of why writing in second person isn't effective with some opportunities to practice revising.

Do you know of a good point of view resource?  Please, share it!
