How Do You Teach Point of View?

I just love this picture.  In case you can't tell that is Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz flooting up in the sky.  Dorothy's point of view of the situation and her friends, the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion"s point of view below are very different.  As a teacher, I like to use visuals to illustrate POV.  It can be a picture or short film clips.  Both help students transfer the idea of POV to the page of a book.

The BIG push in my class for the past two weeks has surrounded the concept of Point of View.  I will say, my students act each year like it is the first time they have heard of POV, but I know that is not the case.  However, I have learned to treat POV like it was the first time they ever heard of it.  So with that said, my intro lesson introduces POV with a POW using a PREZI by Dana Linde.  Check it out an let me know what you think.

Happy Reading & Writing
