This unit uses excerpts from literature to teach the sometimes difficult and abstract concept of point of view, perspective and tone. Students will look at the way the author crafts his/her work to create the personalities of the narrators. Word choice is a large focus of this unit along with thinking critically about how messages are conveyed through characterization.
Excerpts used: Because of Mr. Terupt by Rob Buyea, The Wanderer by Sharon Creech and Wonder by R.J. Palacio
