PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Lessons That Create Writers are exactly what their name denotes: writing lessons that will help turn your students into bonafide writers! This fourth mini-unit in the series, Planning Point of View, will teach your middle schoolers the differences between the three most common points of view used in writing (first person, third person limited, and third person omniscient) and how to select the most appropriate point of view for their writing pieces. Through direct instruction, guided practice, and independent practice, students will explore three different points of view and then use what they learned to write some awesome scene snapshots. Then, through sharing and reflection, as well as formative assessment, students will solidify what they learned about planning points of view for their writing pieces.

Included in this product:

• a detailed lesson plan
• a PowerPoint to use during instruction
• worksheets and notes for students to use during the lesson
• an interactive foldable organizer for students to include in their notes
• an exit ticket to use as a formative assessment
• Common Core alignment for grades 6-8

These lessons are stand alone and a perfect supplement to any middle school writing curriculum.

You can also use this lesson as part of a reading/literature class to teach about the first person, third person limited, and third person omniscient points of view.

(And on a personal note… I love to use these lessons when I am getting observed by a supervisor or administrator, as they provide lots of opportunity for you to demonstrate how well you can provide direct instruction, facilitate guided instruction, support independent practice, and close a lesson with reflection and formative assessment!)
