Learning Objective

Students will review the process for determining point of view. Students will identify the pronouns associated with first person, second person, and third person point of view.


Use this resource to teach your students how to differentiate between first person, second person, and third person point of view. It includes three printables.

The first two printables can be folded into a foldable study guide with six panels:

Panel 1: Cover

Panel 2: What is dialogue? (spoken dialogue vs. internal dialogue)

Panel 3: First Person Point of View Pronouns and Sample Passages

Panel 4: Second Person Point of View Pronouns and Sample Passages

Panel 5: Third Person Point of View Pronouns and Sample Passages

Panel 6: Students learn that when 1st person and 3rd person pronouns are present, the POV is first person.

When students finish creating their foldable study guide, they can refer to it as they complete the follow-up worksheet that includes 6 short reading passages.

Student-friendly directions are included so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project. (An answer key is also included.)
