This resource contains 24 point of view task cards. Students will read the short passage on each card, and then determine which of the following points of view was used by the author:

First Person

Second Person

Third Person

This resource contains two answer sheets. Teachers will determine which one best meets the needs of their students.

Option A: Students will simply determine whether the author used 1st, 2nd or 3rd person point of view.

Option B: After determining the point of view used, students will answer a text-specific question about the passage. I created this alternate answer sheet to encourage students to read the entire passage before identifying the point of view used. (I feared that some of my students would simply scan the task cards for pronoun cues instead of reading the entire passage, so I added the second question for accountability.)
