This 40-slide PowerPoint uses clean and uncluttered slides to teach the literary element of point of view. In addition to information on five points of view used by authors, the PowerPoint is structured to include guidance on taking notes in Cornell-method format. A guided note-taking form is included that matches the format of the PowerPoint.
What you receive in this zipped folder:
A 40-slide PowerPoint presentation that includes the following:
~ Slides that guide students through the process of using the guided notetaking form for taking Cornell notes
~ Slides that share information about five different points of view: first person, second person, third person limited, third person omniscient, and third person objective.
~ Slides that share examples from each point of view. One example is incorporated into the discussion while students are taking notes so that the teacher can use the example for instruction. A second set of examples is included at the end of the presentation for the teacher to use to check understanding.
~ Slides that guide students through the process of checking their notes with a partner and summarizing what they have learned
A guided notetaking form (PDF) that matches the PowerPoint. Items that students should fill in from the PowerPoint are in red to easily catch the eye.
Notes for the teacher (PDF), which contain a thumbnail of each slide plus explanatory information for notetaking or additional information to share as you present.
This PowerPoint can also be used if you wish to present information on just the three basic points of view (first person, third person limited, and third person omniscient). A second version of the PDF note-taking form that covers only these three points of view is included.
