Friday, February 28, Teaching Point of View We have been busy working on point of view, and most specifically, on how an author's point of view impacts how a story is written or told. I loved some of the activities we did, and I'm excited to share them with you! We started the unit by creating an anchor chart together. Point of View Anchor Chart My students had an idea of what point of view was, but they needed to solidify their understanding of the types of third person point of view and well as second person point of view.
If you click on the thumbnail below, you will see a playlist from my iPod I call 'Pronouns. We have a class contest to see whose list sounds the funniest when just the song titles are read aloud in order. The Noun Game Overview: Students click the three "magic buttons" until they build a story prompt inspired by random nouns: Before writing, students should have discussed the power of using precise and interesting nouns in a story.
If you don't have the ability to get your students on computers to use this prompt, you can easily fill three coffee cans with index cards; on each card, write an interesting person, place or thing, depending on which coffee can you're placing it in.
If your students write a particularly good story inspired by the noun prompt they build, you are invited to send it to us at publish writingfix.

One or both of these mentor texts should be shared before attempting this graphing activity. They do an excellent job of showing pronouns in their many forms. Have a partner look over their highlights, pointing out any words that the writer missed in their first look-over; students often miss their own pronouns when beginning this process, and an extra set of eyes helps them catch them all.
It might help to find a piece of writing that is of a similar genre to what your students are working on; for example, if you're learning about and writing personal narratives, do this with a published personal narrative.
Have students work together to highlight popular pronouns in the published piece of writing. Create a class graph that shows a published author's pronoun use. I find that often my students use pronouns a lot more recklessly than published authors do.
When we compare my students' personal graphs to the published author's, a lot of my students make that connection and vow to use fewer pronouns and more precise nouns when they revise. Sensory Words and Imagery Each of the writing traits--word choice included--can be broken down into multiple smaller writing skills that--when working together--make-up the bigger trait.
