This resource contains a series of 6 worksheets that focus on identifying the author's perspective. It also includes a bonus poster that you can use as you are introducing this topic to students.

The first pair of worksheets introduces author's perspective. It begins with a definition that stresses that perspective is based on opinions and experiences. Then, students read three short passages and identify the author's perspective. Finally, they write a sentence about their own perspective and support their answer with their own opinions and experiences. (These two worksheets can be copied so that it is printed on one 2-sided sheet of paper.)

The second pair of worksheets are more advanced and contain two passages that are written as nonfiction essays with facts to support the author's perspective. After students read the passages, they write a sentence to describe the author's perspective. Then, they write a sentence about their own perspective on the topic, and support their answer with their own opinions and experiences.

The third pair of worksheets contain two passages that are written as realistic fiction passages. After students read the passages, they answer a multiple-choice question that says "Which of the following statements most likely represents the perspective of the author?" Then, they write a sentence about their own perspective on the topic and support their answer with their own opinions and experiences.

********This resource is available in TWO FORMATS:

  1. Traditional Printables- Print the PDF and distribute paper copies to your students to complete.
  2. Easel Activity- I created a new, colorful version for this digital format. Students can complete this activity on a device. Students read each passage and identify the author's perspective. Most of the time, they are also asked to contrast the author's perspective with their own perspective on the topic. Most of the tasks require students to type their answers into text boxes. The final two passages feature a multiple-choice question where students move the circle to select their answer.
