Point of View: 24 Task Cards
These 24 point of view task cards are designed to get students thinking about what a character or an author's point of view, and whether they agree or disagree with that point of view.
Each passage contains a short passage. Students:
1. Read the passage
2. Use the answer sheet to explain what the character or author's point of view is (what the character or author thinks)
3. Use the answer sheet to explain whether they agree or disagree with the character or author's point of view.
Because answers will vary by student, a rubric is provided for grading these point of view task cards.
