Activity Overview

The point of view of a story is important in how it is told and what the reader understands. Point of view activities ask students to identify key pronouns to help them discover if the point of view is first person, third person limited, or third person omniscient. For this activity, students will identify who is telling a certain part of the story in Refugee what words they use to describe themselves and others, and in which point of view the story is being told. Teachers may modify or customize the worksheets to provide more or less scaffolding. They can be used digitally or printed and completed by hand.
