Point of View

Step 1Class discussion with students

Getting Started

The ability to determine the point of view of a text is an important critical thinking skill essential to reading comprehension. Teachers should explicitly teach students the definitions, components, and examples of point of view in literature and informational texts (see attached example comics).

Opening Discussion

Create a KW(H)L chart:

  • What do you already know about point of view in life?
  • What do you already know about point of view in literature?
  • What about in informational texts? Poetry?
  • How is point of view similar and different in life and different types of text?
  • How can you decide point of view? What clues or characteristics point to point of view?
  • What do you want to know about point of view?
  • How could you learn more?
  • Why is identifying point of view important?
