Determining the best point of view to use when writing a story or a novel is one of the most important decisions a writer can make. This creative writing exercise will teach your students to recognize and correctly use first-person point of view and third-person limited point of view.

Students will read excerpts from published short stories and novels to determine which point of view the author used and then rewrite those excerpts to practice changing the point of view.
