Features of text showing Point of view
There was factual evidence given in the text such as; Archaeologist discoveries
~ Harman, Sneha & Fizza :)
The author mentioned the counter perspective but in order to make their opinion look stronger because the other point of view was weak. For example; the texts states that Cristopher Columbus himself had written that he met people in the Americas. This helps the authors point of view because they're trying to support that Columbus was not the first to discover the Americas.
~ Fizza, Harman & Sneha
Artistic creations were involved in the story, as the Inca created pottery and pyramids.
-Zack, Parmvir, Brandon
The author was able to engage the readers by using pro nouns by stating that they could take research further and find even MORE proof.

Zack, Gagan, and Jaskaran
The point of view in the story is that
some european strangers came to their
land and the boy had a bad fealing about
them and didn't want to welcome them
because of his dream.He was telling his
opinions but no one would listen to him.The opinions he said were right .Did they really care about them or what they had?They didn't care about them they only cared about what they had.

Question: Do you agree with the point of view presented in the text?


Answer: I agree because the newcomers (explorers) would always steal their resources (gold, silver) and even conquer and sell the Native people themselves. This is true because the Taino people welcomed the explorers as it's their tradition, but Christopher Columbus abused the Taino people's hospitality. Also, the resources on this land (gold, fur) would be stolen for trade for a profit. The Natives, like the Taino boy would be kidnapped, sailed to Spain, and sold as slaves for an income. What kind of cruel, hateful people were these? These were explorers like Christopher Columbus himself, always taking, taking, taking. They were able to take because they tricked the Taino people into trusting them by giving cheap gifts. These cheap gifts were a tactic to creep into their territory and acquire everything that was rightfully theirs. These greedy explorers would be selfish and not care for others, but would value only what they can sell, as they brought with them weapons and their desire for riches. When Christopher Columbus and his crew arrived there, 300 000 Taino people lived freely there. Fifty years later, the numbers were dramatically reduced to 500 Taino peOPLE. THJS DEMONStRAtES tHE AUtHOR’S POJNt of view that Christopher Columbus and his crew were very hostile, disrespectful and inconsiderate of the kind Taino people.
'Encounter' by Jane Yolen
the point of view presented in the text is that the boy didn't wanted to go with the strangers but the strangers forced him and took him with them. the europeans gave presents to the boy but they weren't worth what the boy gave them. (gold&silver)
While we observed the book encountered we noticed that the main topic is how the Taino boy met the European explorers. We know this because through out the story he observes the way they act and the way they look. For example he glimpsed at there shoes thinking they had no feet and looked at there skin assuming they came from the sky. He was frightened by there sharp powerful silver weapons they brought. As for these reasons we know that the main topic is how the Taino boy met the European explorers.
Writing (Just a reminder!)
daniel-My opinion is that they belief the strangers were birds that came from the sky.The boy
The boy also belief that the stranger were not people.

1.The perspective is in support of Columbus but not fully aslater on in the video it talks about the other person who proved that it was found by the person who found the North America and knew he found North America
Richa, Amiya, Aliyaah
The point of view fo the perosn that is tellinghe tor yis the narrator. We know this because if it was Coloumbus's point-of-view, he would have used pronouns. In the video above the person that is talking is referring to the name of Colommbus and many others. Therefore it cannot be Colmbus's point-of -view. This proves that this story/video is from the point-of-view of the narrator.
The narrator is taking the prespeticve of Coloumbus in suprt of him. The narrator is not in full support of Coloubus, because he/she showed anotounter perspective, Amerigo Vespucci. The narrator is stauing in between the line and not fully stating his point of view.
The point-of-view of who is telling the story is from the narrarators point-of-view, we know this beause if it was from Christopher Columbus's point-of-view, the nararator would not be talking about Christopher Columbus in the 3'rd person. Also, if the story was being told from the Indians point-of-view, the narrarator would not speak about the Indians in the 3'rd person. There is no other characters for the storyteller take the point-of-view of.
The perspective is from the Europeans. They are supporting Columbus and the Aboriginals. They need to give an balanced opinion. Also if Columbus discovered America would it not be on Columbus only. There should be no people there. Also it should be named after him. It is not the opinion of Columbus, as there are pronouns used such as "he" or "him" when referring to Columbus, and if it was Columbus referrring to himself, he would say "I" or "me" instead.
The voice over thought that
Columbus was brave and courageous. When the crew ways sailing, the voice
over said that the crew ways scares and Columbus was brave and courageous. The voice over thinks Columbus is a hero. That means it is a state of opinion.
