Point of View

Our latest "critical learning pathway" is focusing on the Reading Expectation:
By the end of Grade 1, students will:

begin to identify, with support and direction, the speaker and the point of view presented in a text and suggest a possible alternative perspective (e.g., dramatize the story, taking on the role of different characters; create drawings, paintings, or models to represent the perspective of different characters in a text).

To help the students begin to understand what the term "point of view" means, we read Amy Krouse Rosenthal's book, Duck! Rabbit! today. We created a chart that illustrates the two points of view presented in the text AND the evidence provided. Students chose the point of view that they strongly agreed with and practiced supporting their chosen perspective with three pieces of evidence from the text.

What do you see?
