Our Point of View Lesson Plan introduces young readers to the impact that perspective has on a story, including its plot, characters and author’s intent. Strengthen reading comprehension as well as written expression as students learn how to differentiate and utilize the three major points of view in reading and writing. During this lesson, students are asked to read provided passages, write the author’s point of view, and identify the clues that showed them which point of view it was. Students are also asked to complete a “point of view hunt” in which they find at least three different books or texts which they read and identify the point of view the author used.

At the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify first person, second person, and third person point of view when reading and demonstrate the ability to write in first, second, or third person.
