Teaching students about point of view is more important than ever. Students need to learn that they can disagree with an author or character, how to consider thoughts and actions from a different perspective, and how an author's own biases might affect a text. This bundle addresses all of these skills related to point of view.

These 24 point of view task cards are designed to help students thinking about what a character or an author's point of view is, and whether they agree or disagree with that point of view.
Each task cards contains a short reading passage. There are 12 fiction / narrative task cards and 12 nonfiction / informational task cards. Students will read the task card and determine the author or character's point of view (what the character or author thinks about a certain topic). Then, students will explain their own point of view - whether or not they agree with the character's actions or the author's thoughts.
Included in this resource:
1. 24 task cards with short reading passages (12 fiction and 12 nonfiction)
2. Student recording sheets
3. A grading rubric for assessment
Because answers will vary by student, there is no answer key.
These point of view task cards are great to help 3rd grade and 4th grade students realize that they don't have to agree with the author of a text. Use them in literacy groups for small group instruction, as a reading center, for independent practice, for modeling, and more.
