It is designed to introduce 3rd and 4th grade students to first person, second person, and third person points of view. The reso$10.99$21.98Save $10.99
Students will learn the steps to identifying the point of view used in a literary work. Students will read passages and determine whether the author used first person or third person point of view.
This 47-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students how to determine the author's point of view. Students are shown three steps:
1. Read the passage.
2. Cross out the dialogue.
3. Focus in on the pronouns.
If they consistently do these three things, they will learn how to determine whether a passage is 1st person, 2nd person, or 3rd person.
It also includes a 3-page companion handout. I created this worksheet as a “companion” to the Point of View PowerPoint. I intend to use this with my students so they can follow along as we make our way through the slides. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.
Because the PowerPoint is interactive and answers are not revealed until I click to forward, all students will be given time to cross out the dialogue, highlight the pronouns, and then ultimately determine the point of view for each passage.
Once the PowerPoint presentation is complete, there is a final passage on the worksheets for students to complete independently to hold them accountable for paying attention. This will also allow me to identify those students who need additional instruction and/or practice.

**I have another PowerPoint in my store that takes it a step further, and teaches students how to determine if a passage is written using the 3rd Person Limited POV or the 3rd Person Omniscient POV. Please do NOT purchase both of these PowerPoints, as many of the slides are the same. Click on the link below if you think that may better meet the needs of your learners.
