Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Who is Telling the Story? - Section 4: Practicing First Person Point of View


My students need much practice with different types of skills to become proficient readers. There is an intensity about the CCSS that needs to be addressed in baby steps. One of those baby steps was addressing point of view with teaching them particular words that are associated with first person, second person, and third person. I am glad I took the time to give them this tool. I feel they applied it well when they had to find sentences that showed evidence of first person.

Teaching my students about evidence is new, and I felt that they benefitted much from having to go back into the text and locate sentences that demonstrated evidence for point of view.

I liked that I was able to have fun using reader's theatre with my students. It was nice to finish this unit in this way and be able to teach them about the different characters in an interactive way.

I believe these two different ways of addressing point of view helped my English Language Learners have a deeper understanding of the characters and the plot, and I would use them again.
