- This bundle of activities focuses on identifying the point of view used by an author of a reading passage or literary piece. Several activities include test prep elements. It is designed to teach upper elementary and middle school students how to analyze a reading passage for its point of view in a$10.99$21.74Save $10.75
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, second person, third person limited, or third person omniscient point of view.
This 64-slide PowerPoint is a step-by-step presentation that teaches students how to determine the author's point of view. First, students are shown how to determine whether a passage is first person, second person, or third person. Once they have had lots of practice making this determination, they are shown how to determine whether the third person passages are "third person limited" or "third person omniscient". Then there is more practice.
It also includes a 4-page companion handout. I intend to use this with my students so they can follow along as we make our way through the 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. The companion handout is available in both printable format or digital format. The digital version is compatible with Google Slides.
Also, you DO have my permission to convert this PowerPoint to a Google Slides format to share with your students.
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 also have a simpler version of this PowerPoint. It only includes 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Person. (Students are not shown how to differentiate between the 3rd Person Limited and 3rd Person Omniscient Points of View.) Please do NOT purchase both of these PowerPoints!! (The majority of the slides are the same!) Click on this link if you think this one might better fit the needs of your students. Point of View Introduction PowerPoint: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Person
