Reflection: Lesson Planning Third Person Omniscient Point of View - Section 2: Text Exemplars


This lesson requires a lot of research into age appropriate text exemplars. Most examples are classics such as A Tale of Two Cities and Lord of the Rings.  Another popular novel, Hoot by Carl Hiassen, is a great example of third person omniscient.  Although the text may be difficult for most second graders, reading aloud and discussing excerpts of literature together as they relate to points of view can be very enlightening.  Teacher guidance and interpretation of text is necessary, but students ultimately gain a deeper understanding of the POV from complex texts.
