I really wanted my students to understand what things like "point of view" meant. I wanted them to be able to remember what it meant and how it applied to not only what they are reading, but their life outside a text. I also wanted a tangible memory or experience that I could attach to the skill. This is how these lessons were born. Now my students really understand the term and remember it all year long! I hope yours can too!
