Transcript of POINT OF VIEW

FIRST PERSON
Point of View

This is how the person who is experiencing the event sees what is happening.

Let's view a fun trip down a mountain to understand first person better.
THIRD PERSON
POINT OF VIEW

This point of view is told from the perspective of a narrator viewing another
person and describing what is happening. This point of view is told using the pronouns "he", "she" or
"they".
OMNISCIENT

Point of View

This view is told from a narrator who has access to everything. The narrator can see and understand all perspectives in the story and all of the feelings that the characters are experiencing.
POINT OF VIEW
by Mrs. Lanier
7th Grade Language Arts
WHAT MIGHT
YOU HAVE BEEN
THINKING AS YOU
WENT DOWN THE
MOUNTAIN?
What obstacles
might have been
out of your view and/or control?
FIRST
PERSON
POINT
OF
VIEW
Told from the
narrator's
point of view: expresses his or her thoughts, emotions, ideas
Limited because the person may not see or understand something outside of his or her view
Found in many types of writing but especially
autobiographies, memoirs, and journals

THIRD
PERSON
POINT
OF
VIEW
Told from an outside narrator perspective using pronouns
"he" "she" or
"they"
Can understand events or actions that the character may not see or understand
Does not know the character's thoughts or feelings unless the character reveals somehow
What did the videographer see from his perspective that might be different from the skier's perspective?
How is an
omniscient
narrator different
from the first and third
person narrators?
THIRD
PERSON
OMNISCIENT
POINT
OF
VIEW
This type of
narrator knows
EVERYTHING
and
sees
EVERYTHING
Many classic
novels use the
omniscient
narrator, such as THE HOBBIT
Sometimes,
this type of narration
can feel overwhelming, but it can also give the
reader infinite knowledge
and lead to epic tales.
Now, it's time for
practice. You are going to read "Jacob's Chicken" by Milos Macourek in your assignment file.
Afterwards, in your Live Journals, I want you to write your thoughts on how the story might be different from a different point of view.
