✎ Determine the narrator’s or character's perspective within a story based on their experience, beliefs, values, and attitudes
✎ Distinguish between the character’s or narrator’s point of view and that of the reader’s
✎ Evaluate the narrator’s or character’s perspective
✎ Determine the points of view from which stories are narrated
✎ Describe how the narrator’s point of view influences the way a story is told
✎ Compare and contrast the points of view from which different stories are told
✎ Infer and describe how an account of a story would be different if narrated from a different point of view
✎ Describe how a character’s perspective can change within a story
✎ Determine which important details within a story support all of the above
Note: Point of view, perspective, and viewpoint are used interchangeably for instructional purposes, however distinguishing between point of view from which a story is narrated and a character's or narrator's point of view (perspective) is made clear throughout the activities.

Thank you so much for creating this!"
