This is not over what is traditionally taught for POV like third person omniscient, limited or objective. This is differing viewpoints or perspectives. It does not switch POV, but viewpoint. Can someone explain how this can be taught with different POV narration (1st person, 3rd person limited, etc). Thanks.

I was looking for something that could spark critical thinking and problem solving for the learners I wish the was time allocation on each stage but still, it worked for me.

I need a "high interest reading lesson with writing component" for a third round interview in front of a live class of 7th grades - at a school where I am trying to get a job. I found something earlier, but this seems so much better - I love the technology component. Also, being that it's the end of the school year students aren't really going to want to do a lot of work - so hopefully this will allow them to be more engaged. I'm going to try to find some music to go along with the whole "big bad wolf" theme.....

I am excited to try out this lesson on analyzing view points. I have been doing the same with the students of my Grade 6 class using the book'Voices in the Park' by Anthony Browne. The students are enjoying analyzing each voice in the book using images, font, language and punctuation.

I actually was wondering the same thing! I lover Dr. Andreotti's work!

I was wondering is this lesson based on Dr. Vanessa Andreotti's model on critical literacy???
