Reflection: Lesson Planning Point of View: We all see black and white together - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


One aspect of Point of View that always confuses students is dialogue. When a story has dialogue, the characters that are talking obviously speak in First Person. This often makes students assume that the entire story is told in First Person because they see words like I or me. So, one thing that is important to point out during this lesson is that you must look outside of any dialogue to truly determine whether it is a character or a narrator telling the story. When I model the text in these packets, I cross out any dialogue with the students so that they do not get mixed up with the words we are looking for from the anchor chart. It is outside of dialogue that the true voice of the story comes through.
