Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Charlie or Isabel Jane? The Bag Will Decide - Section 3: Sharing and Preparing


Before the implementation of the Common Core State Standards, this kind of analysis of perspective is not something I would have taught nor would any other teacher prior to me have taught so it is no wonder that the students are having difficulty with the concept.  They were always asked who is telling the story but never how would the story be different if someone else had told the story.  We would have never analyzed the impact of who the narrator is on the text.  In these very early perspective lessons, I have just tried to get the students to understand how to tell who is telling the story and how easily it can be changed back and forth.  Further analysis is necessary for them to be able to accurately tell how the text is impacted.  And that is just as I suspected it would be.
