Reflection: Student Ownership First Person Point of View - Section 3: Story Analysis


Students shared their evidence that led them to the conclusion that their selected text is told from a first person point of view.  Going back to the text to find supportive evidence that matches the characteristics of the first person point of view solidified their claims.  Also, students were able communicate their knowledge to others as shown on this First Person Perspective Student Presentation.

Various sources for age appropriate text exemplars in all perspectives must be selected to prepare for this lesson.  A mix of these text exemplars in class libraries of book bins facilitates instruction.
