Reflection: Lesson Planning Point of View: You see black, I see white - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


When I use books to demonstrate or practice a strategy with students, I always try to use ones that we are currently reading or have read together in the past, which is why I chose Tales of a 4th Grade Nothing.  But another great story to use for Point of View is The True Story of the Three Little Pigs (Scieszka, John. The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. New York: Viking Kestrel, 1989. Print). Most kids know the original story where the wolf is the bad guy but this clever book is told from the wolf’s perspective and students can get a great understanding of how Point of View truly influences a story and how it’s told. The following link shares several other books that are great to use when teaching Point of View:
