Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Review: Point of View - Section 2: POV ID


My observations as students discussed their findings with their partners revealed that students found it easier to identify which point of view are represented per passage than it was to provide reasons for their choice.  In order to explain their choices, students had to deepen their knowledge of this concept.  Conceptual understanding can only be reached if students took the time to logically and methodically analyze and interpret each point of view so that each makes sense to them as well as applicable to their learning.  Higher order thinking is reached not solely by application, but by synthesizing and evaluating what is learned.
