This resource uses scaffolds and graphic organizers to examine the four areas of Point of View: experiences, beliefs, attitude, and values. With the Common Core State Standards comes a new way of looking at Point of View. No longer just identifying the speaker, students now have to be able to cite evidence, infer and compare experiences, beliefs, attitude, and values of characters and themselves.

This product is paired with the following literature by Gerald McDermott:
Arrow to the Sun

Generic versions of the graphic organizers come included so you can continue to use the organizers with any literature.

What's Included
★ Point of View Reference Chart and Point of View Page to teach students the meaning of Point of View.
★ Point of View example pages using First Lady Michelle Obama’s Perspective on Nutrition as an example. There's another example using the Big Bad Wolf perspective on meeting Little Red Riding Hood.
★ Let’s Examine Your Point of View page to have students write in their perspective on school.
★ Generic Let’s Examine Your Point of View page for you to practice on another topic.
★ Let’s Examine Coyote’s Point of View, Let’s Examine the Boy’s Point of View, and Let’s Examine Raven’s Point of View pages.
★ Compare Other Characters' Point of View from the story (one for each story and a generic version).
★ Compare Your Point of View with a Character’s Point of View pages.
★ ********UPDATED with more graphic organizers to address Common Core State Standard RL.3.9, to compare and contrast the setting, characters and central message from stories by the same author.

Students can write comparing their point of view with that of the character using the Point of View Comparisons page. It is a generic page so use it with the characters from the three stories or any character.
