1. What was the name of Edgar Allan Poe's first love?
The name of Edgar Allan Poe's first love was Elmira Royster.
2. What was so mysterious about Edgar Allan Poe's death?
Edgar Allan Poe's death was considered mysterious because no one really knows for sure what caused him to die, "...actual actual cause of death has been the subject of endless speculation" the article states (pg.2). He was found in Baltimore when he was supposed to be on his way to Philadelphia "in great distress" the article describes (pg. 2). We can infer that he was extremely disoriented. Theories for his death include "alcoholism...rabies, epilepsy, carbon monoxide poisoning" and more, but the real cause remains a mystery (pg. 2).

Edgar Allan Poe's real parents were actors who left him orphaned at a very young age. His father abandoned the family when Poe was young whereas his mother "passed away when he was only three" it is described (pg. 1).
4. Why did he enlist in the army?
Albeit (although) the article does not explicitly state the reason for why Edgar Allan Poe joined the army we can infer that he probably joined due to personal goals, for it was one of his "twin aspirations," and for financial reasons because the article states that he was in need of money, "...ended up in debt" (pg. 1).
6. Which genre of fiction does the article claim that Edgar Allan Poe founded?
According to the article, the genre of fiction that Edgar Allan Poe founded was the detective story, "His creative talents led to the beginning of different literary genres, earning him the nickname 'Father of the Detective Story'" the article states (pg.1).
7. According to this article, what were Edgar Allan Poe's "twin aspirations"?
Edgar Allan Poe's twin aspirations were publishing a book as well as joining the army. The article states, "Poe published his first book, Tamerlane and Other Poems in 1827" while simultaneously joining the "army around this time" (pg.1).
7. Who was the friend that Edgar Allan Poe discredited? What did he say about him?
discredit: harm the good reputation of (someone or something)
(di)screditare

The friend that Edgar Allan Poe discredits is the fellow writer Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. He criticizes Longfellow's writing by calling him a "plagarist" which caused "blacklash for Poe" according to the article (pg. 3).

Edgar Allan Poe's wife's name was Virginia. She was his "young cousin" who he married when she was only 13 years old (pg. 3). She was also described as Poe's "literary inspiration" (pg. 3).

Example

As she walked up the hill, she realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who she so often heard singing from the top of the maple tree. She thought she saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when she looked again it was gone. Nevertheless, she shuddered as she felt a silent threat pass over her. It felt like a cloud creeping over the sun.
Third Person Limited POV
Example:

As I walked up the hill, I realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet. There was no sound from the cardinal who was nearly always singing from the top of the maple tree. I thought I saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when I looked again it was gone. Still, I shuddered as I felt a silent threat pass over me like a cloud over the sun.
First Person POV
Example

As the girl walked up the hill, she realized that the atmosphere was just too quiet.
The cardinal tipped his head back and drew breath to sing, but just as the first note passed his beak he heard the crack of a dead branch far below his perch high in the maple tree. Startled, he looked down, cocking his head to one side and watching with great interest while the man rattled the blades of grass as he tried to hide himself behind the tree.
As the man saw her start up the hill, he moved quickly into the shelter of the huge old maple tree. If she saw him now, everything would be ruined.
She thought she saw a shadow move high up on the slope, but when she looked again it was gone.
The man thought if he could stay hidden until she came within range, she'd have to talk to him. Wouldn't she?
The girl shuddered as she felt a silent threat pass over her. It felt like a cloud creeping over the sun.
Third Person Omniscient POV
Definition: narrator is not in the story, but sees into the minds of ALL characters – outside looking in (omni=all; sci=science=knowledge  all knowing)

Pronouns: he, she, they, etc.

Readers Know: thoughts/feelings of all characters
Third Person Omniscient POV
Definition: narrator is not a character in the story, but a reporter of ONE of the character’s thoughts and feelings – outside looking in

Pronouns: he, she, they, etc.

Readers Know: thoughts/feelings of ONE character
Third Person Limited POV
Definition: the narrator is a character in the story

Pronouns: I, me, my, we, us

Readers Know: thoughts/feelings of the narrator only

Advantages to first person are: it allows you to get a very clear understanding of the main character. By listening to their thoughts and knowing everything that they experience, it is easier to analyze what they go through. It can also be very interesting because it’s almost like you are the main character. However, it’s only one side of the story!
First Person POV
Definition: the perspective from which the story is told

Significance: affects how much we know, whose opinion we get, etc.
- Authors make the short stories meaningful by using special techniques. As GREAT READERS, it’s important to recognize and understand these techniques. Point of view is one technique that
authors use to tell their stories in the best way
possible.
Point of View

1. I just finished a book about dragons and I want to tell you about it.

2. I looked up dragons in the encyclopedia and I discovered that they are a mythical creature.

3. Since dragons are mythical they are not real.

4. Because I look dragons I may learn to like fantasy books!
The story here is written in first person. The reader can tell it is written in first person because it uses the pronouns "I" to describe the story. I think the author decided to write this story in first person because we can understand exactly what the main character is feeling as she walks up the hill, “I shuddered as I felt a silent threat pass over me...” she states. This helps me make a connection to her and to her scenario, so I can understand exactly what she is going through.
The story here is written in third person limited. The reader can tell it is written in third person limited because it uses the pronoun “she.” Since this is the only third-person pronoun it uses, I can tell that it is third person limited instead of third person omniscient. I think the author decided to write this story in third person limited because we can understand what the main character is thinking and feeling, but we also have enough distance to look at her as though an outsider. This helps me make a connection to her but also understand the distinction between character and narrator.
The story here is written in third person omniscient. The reader can tell it is written in third person omniscient because it uses the pronouns “she,” “his,” and “him.” Since there are three different pronouns that refer to three different characters in this passage, I know that this is third person omniscient instead of third person limited. I think the author decided to write this story in third person omniscient because we can understand what many characters are thinking and feeling, all at the same moment. This helps me make a connection to many different characters and understand many different perspectives rather than just one.

ROUND TABLE
1. In your groups, clear your desks of everything except ONE piece of paper and ONE writing utensil (per group).
2. When the teacher says go, you will have exactly 45 seconds to come up with as many words as possible. You will generate this list of words by coming up with one word and then SILENTLY passing it on to the next group member.

2. From time to time, Mrs. Popper sighed a little as she thought about the long winter ahead. Would there really be enough beans to last, she wondered.
Mr. Popper was not worried, however. As he put on his spectacles, he was quite pleased at the prospect of a whole winter reading travel books, with no work to interrupt him.
Possible Answer#2:
The story Mr. Popper's Penguins, by Richard and Florence Atwater is written in third person omniscient. The reader can tell it is written in third person omniscient because of the pronouns, "she" and "he." Since we have more than one characters thoughts and feelings we know it cannot be third person limited. I think the author chose to write this story in third person omniscient because we can get multiple perspectives. We know both what Mrs. Popper and Mr. Popper are thinking and feeling. This helps me to understand both characters and to anticipate conflict that may occur between them over the winter that is coming.
3. He himself was a very old man with shaggy white hair which grew over most of his face as well as on his head, and they liked him almost at once. But on the first evening when he came to meet them at the front door he was so odd-looking that Lucy (who was the youngest) was a little afraid of him, and Edmund (who was the next youngest) wanted to laugh and had to keep on pretending he was blowing his nose to hide it.
Possible Answer#3:
The story, The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis is written in third person omniscient. The reader can tell it is written in third person omniscient because the author uses the words, "He," and "they" to describe what is happening. Additionally, the author conveys (tells) the feelings of all the character's thoughts and emotions. I think the author chose to write this story in third person omniscient because we can understand the reactions of all the characters to the old man. This helps me to understand the differing characteristics and emotions of each character as opposed to just one.
4. Esparanza's grandmother, whom everyone called Abuelita, lived with them and was a smaller, older, more wrinkled version of Mama. She looked very distinguished, wearing a respectable black dress, the same gold loops she wore in her ears every day, and her while hair pulled back into a bun at the nape of her neck. But Esperanza loved her more for her capricious ways than for her propriety. Abuelita might host a groups of ladies for formal tea in the afternoon, but after they had gone, be found wandering barefoot in the grapes, with a book in her hand, quoting poetry to the birds.
The story, Esperanza Rising, by Pam Munoz Ryan, is written in third person limited. The reader can tell that it is written in third person limited because the author uses the pronouns "she" to describe what is happening. I think the author chose to write this story in third person limited so that we could understand the thoughts and feelings of one character while remaining detached enough to view the description of other characters. This helps me to understand what Esperanza's thoughts and feelings are towards her grandmother while being able to objectively view her grandmother's actions and description.

The Scarecrow found a tree full of nuts and filled Dorothy’s basket with them, so that she would not be hungry for a long time. She thought this was very kind and thoughtful of Scarecrow, but she laughed heartily at the awkward way in which the poor creature picked up the nuts. His padded hands were so clumsy that he dropped almost as many as he put in the basket. But the Scarecrow did not mind how long it took him to fill the basket, for it enabled him to keep away from the fire, as he feared a spark might get into his straw and burn him up.
The story, The Wizard of Oz by Frank L. Baum is written in third person omniscient. The reader can tell it is written in third person because the author uses the pronouns “She,” “His,” and “he” in order to describe what is happening. Furthermore, the reader can the tell the story is written in the third person omniscient because it describes the thoughts and feelings of all the characters. For example, it states in the text that Dorothy feels amused by the Scarecrow's clumsiness whereas the Scarecrow feels indifferent to her laughing. I think the Frank L. Baum chose to write this story in third person omniscient because we can understand the intimate thoughts of all the characters. This helps me to connect to both the Scarecrow and Dorothy and understand how their thoughts differ as they react to the others actions.
2. The next morning, Mr. Sir marched the boys to another section of the lake, and each boy dug his own hole, five feet deep and five feet wide. Stanley was glad to be away from the big hole. At least now he knew just how much he had to dig for the day. And, it was a relief not to have other shovels swinging past his face, or the Warden hanging around.
The story, Holes by Louis Sachar, is written in third person limited. The reader can tell it is written in third person because the author uses the pronoun “he” and proper pronoun “Stanley” to describe what is happening. Furthermore, we are limited to the thoughts and feelings of one character so we know that it is third person limited instead of third person omniscient. I think the Louis Sachar chose to write this story in third person limited because we can understand the thoughts and feelings of Stanley, the main character while remaining a distant observer. This helps me to connect to the thoughts and actions of the main character, Stanley, while maintaining the distance and objectiveness of an outside observer.
We lived on the main residential street in town – Atticus, Jem and I, plus Calpurnia our cook. Jem and I found our father satisfactory; he played with us, read to us, and treated us with courteous detachment… Our mother died when I was two, so I never felt her absence. She was a Graham from Montgomery; Atticus met her when he was first elected to the state legislature.
This story, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, is written in first person point of view. The reader can tell that this story is written in first person point of view because the author uses the pronouns “I” and “Our” to describe what is happening. For example, "Jem and I found our father satisfactory" the text states. Additionally we know the thoughts and feelings of this one character. For example, she thinks her father is adequate and she feels indifferent about her mothers death. I think Harper Lee chose to write this story in first person because we can understand the intimate thoughts and feelings of the main character as though we were the protagonist herself. This helps me to connect to the narrator and main character of the story on a more personal level.
Now you try,
Take the next 10 minutes and work independently (individually) on the Exit Ticket handout in your folder!

Identify what POV the passage is written in, then use the paragraph framework to explain your answer and analyze for author purpose as well as text significance!!
objective (adj): not influenced by personal feelings or opinions in considering and representing facts
" historians try to be objective and impartial."
objectivus
unbiased, unprejudice, impartial
In a jury, it is crucial that no one has prior familiarity with or knowledge of any member involved in the trial. Why?
If a doctor is performing surgery, it is imperative that he or she claims no prior relation to the patient (does not know the patient on a personal level). Why?
Now, when the author uses third person point of view, he or she does this for a purpose. When we read a passage in third person POV we are more objective - why?
subjective: based on or influenced by personal feelings, tastes, or opinions.
"his views are highly subjective"
emotional, personal, opinion*
subjectivus
subject - brought under
Timmy likes to eat ice cream whereas Cathy likes to eat carrots.

Objective:
1. Students will accurately identify POV in sample passages.
2. Students will complete constructed responses for questions that ask about POV.

Why?: The ability to identify and explain the author's purpose for different POV's is a highly critical skill that will be tested on future standardized tests (Common Core Standards). Additionally, this skill will enable students to think analytically about a text!!
