Transcript of Perspective vs. Point of View

Perspective vs. Point of View
Using your perspective, is it a Duck or a Rabbit?
We all have different backgrounds and therefore, see things differently/have different perspectives.
Perspective vs. Point of View
Final Thoughts;

Point of View: How is it told?

Perspective: Who tells it?
How does that change the story?
We totally have aced this topic. We know that Point of View is HOW the author wrote the story.

You know...

First Person

Second Person

Third Person (Omniscient, Limited, Objective)
Choosing a perspective means choosing a character to tell the story.

Stories are usually told through the eyes of one character, sometimes this means it is told by the main character, but not always. Within a story, multiple perspectives may be found. For example, in Loot we mostly see things through March's eyes. However, in Please Mr. Panda, we see things through the Panda and the Lemur's perspectives.

Movies and video games can have perspectives too. For example, Call of Duty is told from the perspective, or from the character, of soldiers.
POINT OF VIEW: How the story is told (What people words are used?)


PERSPECTIVE: Who tells the story or who do we follow in the story?

*** Remember: Just because a story follows one character, that doesn't mean it has to be first person!

For example: Loot is third person omniscient, but follows March's story.
Don't Confuse Us!
John Jacob J.S. came in without his homework for the 80 thousandth time.

Teacher Perspective: John Jacob is being lazy and refuses to ever do his work. There is no way to help him.

John Jacob's Perspective: He doesn't understand his homework and he's too afraid to ask for help. At his house, asking for help is a sign of weakness and he gets in trouble.
Different Perspectives
Point of View
These are two totally different things, but telling them apart can be confusing.
