Product Description
Having trouble finding activities about author's point of view in nonfiction? Bored by the monotonous activities and task cards? Look no further!

I created these reading response activities because I couldn't find an engaging lesson where students analyze an author's position/point of view in a nonfiction text.

This resource includes 3 reading response activities that go along with the following nonfiction articles:
~ "Are Young Athletes Putting Themselves at Risk?" from Junior Scholastic, April 2011
~ "Study: Teenage Brain Lacks Empathy" from NBC News, September 8, 2006
~ "Should 4-Year-Olds Be Beauty Queens?" from Scholastic Scope, December 2011

When I taught this lesson, students worked with a partner and I allowed them to choose which article they wanted to analyze. It could also work well for small groups or stations.

After reading the article(s), students complete a reading response where they:
~ Determine the author's purpose
~ Identify the author's point of view & cite text evidence to support their answer
~ Choose a piece of text evidence to answer a question related to the article
~ Provide their opinion about whether the author's position about the topic was positive or negative

My students loved reading about these topics, and it was a great way for me to introduce the RI.6 standard!

Enjoy!
