Activity Overview


Point of view provides the eyes, ears, and thoughts of a character. By analyzing point of view, students can gather insight to the author’s purpose, theme, and voice. In this activity, students will examine the author’s point of view and identify ways it is unique in understanding elements of the story.


First person point of view allows readers to see everything through Greg’s eyes.

  1. “But then I found out who I DID have to wrestle, and I would have traded for Benny Wells in a heartbeat.”

  2. “The song is only three minutes long, but to me it felt like an hour and a half. I was just praying the curtains would go down so we could hop off the stage.”

  3. “At 12:15, me and Rowley left school and walked the kindergartners home. The whole trip ate up forty-five minutes, and there were only twenty minutes of Pre-Algebra left when we got back.”
