As any middle or high school ELA teacher knows, students don’t always jump to it when we ask them to analyze literature. We have to enage them, and that task often involves technology. The problem is that such tech can be hard to prepare.
That’s where this activity comes in! All the prep has been done for you, and students are ready to engage! Students will be provided with slides with clickable buttons to help them review point-of-view.
In this activity, which can be adapted to ANY text, students will explore both of these perspectives:
• First and third person points of view
• Third person limited vs. omniscient
After identifying the appropriate POV for the text, students will prove their thinking electronically using textual evidence with page numbers.
The lesson should take about 15-20 minutes and could follow your own minilesson on POV, or use it as an extended warmup.
Bonus! Don’t know how to load this assignment into your school’s LMS? Just reach out using the contact information provided on the last slide of the activity, and I will be glad to help!
This activity could also work as a lesson plan to leave with a substitute teacher; just save the grading for when you return.
Thanks for supporting a fellow teacher! So glad you stopped by!
