These 24 point of view task cards are designed to help students thinking about what a character or an author's point of view is, and whether they agree or disagree with that point of view.

Each task cards contains a short reading passage. There are 12 fiction / narrative task cards and 12 nonfiction / informational task cards. Students will read the task card and determine the author or character's point of view (what the character or author thinks about a certain topic). Then, students will explain their own point of view - whether or not they agree with the character's actions or the author's thoughts.
