Description

Help your students shift from a less formal first and second-person point of view in their writing to a commanding and strong third-person point of view with this Writing Spotlight mini-unit. This writing unit for middle school and high school ELA includes teachable content and student resources to help your students improve strengthen their writing and shift their thinking from the first to the third-person POV.

"In my opinion..." "I believe that..." "The author shows us..." "When you..." If you are tired of reading these phrases in student essays, this resource if for you! This unit explains WHY we write in the third person and show students HOW to make the shift.

This unit includes:

  • a 24 slide, editable PowerPoint presentation for direct instruction and whole-class exercises
  • 7 PDF pages of student resources
  • Answer keys
  • Writing examples

Aiming to improve student writing, each Writing Spotlight unit focuses on one aspect of writing. I recommend that you incorporate these mini-unit spotlights into your instruction one at a time. Each time you assign a new, substantial writing assignment, incorporate a new Spotlight to create strong, confident writers.
