    One of our lowest tested objectives is "different forms of point of view" - so I need ideas! I'm coming up short. I need to spend the whole week on this!

    Looking for ideas and also mentor texts.

    I need to do more 'perspective' type things than point-of-view. Which is hard because I keep wanting to say "point of view" when I really mean "perspective" - I know they will all get confused b/c "point of view" (to them) means "1st person" or "3rd person"!!

    Help!

    Do you mean writing/reading things told from different perspectives? Like the book Shep (I can't think of the author), which is told from the dog's perspective. If that's what you mean, another great book is I am the Dog, I am the Cat, which is told from both a dog's and cat's point of view.

    Can you do a RAFT activity? Also, could you look at POV in movies?

    Read two articles...one the is written for a topic and one against a topic.

    I love the book Voices in the Park, which is written from five different characters points of view. Then I have the students write from various points of view.

    So, to make sure I understand... :)

    Do you have to or have you already taught first, second, limited, omniscient and all that?

    Sorry. We are concentrating on 1st and 3rd person.

    I don't have an arsenal of books or activities - this being the start of my 2nd year after a 10-year break.

    I will put these books on my wish list; we don't have them in the library and I don't have them... but can get them for next year's lessons.

    We aren't allowed to show video unless we've submitted a form, like, 2 weeks in advance.

    I don't know what a RAFT activity is.

    You just need to give them more
    practice identifying the narrator's view point in
    a variety of texts.

    Check these out: point of view.
