1 Favorites

Lesson Objective

Students will be able to identify and describe the third person point of view.

Lesson Plan

(I)       will review what we have learned about first person point of view in lesson 1. I will introduce the third person point of view by explaining that the narrator is telling the story from someone else’s viewpoint and the narrator is not a character in the story. I will read the sentences written on chart paper (provided in unit) and model how to identify the sentences written in the third person. I will discuss how the sentences are written as if the narrator is watching what is happening to someone else.
(We)       will read Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak and identify the point of view of the book (third person). We will discuss and chart (example provided) what we notice about this point of view.
(You)      will read three paragraphs and identify which is written in the third person. You will explain how you determined the point of view of the text. (Independent Practice is provided.)
