Reflection: Joy Point of View: Black or white? Prove it - Section 2: Mini-Lesson


Without the anchor chart in front of them, students sometimes have difficulty remembering which is which between First Person and Third Person. They might know that the narrator is telling the story but will call that First Person. Or they notice it’s a character telling the story but will say that it’s Third Person. One way to help students remember is by telling them that a character is the first person in the story, which will help them remember First Person. Another idea is to have a day, or even just a lesson, where everyone refers to themselves in the Third Person. For example, I would say, “Mrs. Arabo would like you to clear your desks.” Students would have to ask questions by saying, “John was wondering what time lunch is,” or can Jessica please use the restroom?” It would be really funny and memorable and could hopefully help students remember the difference between First Person and Third Person.
