1. The teacher will show a short video on the three point of views. The teacher will stop throughout the video so students can take notes on the attached document entitled, "Note Taker."
2. Next, the teacher and students will make a class chart describing the three point of views and come up with example sentences. Students will add information to their note taker page.
3. Then, the teacher will read aloud Shel Silverstein’s poem “Boa Constrictor”. From the notes on the point of views, the teacher and students will discuss what the point of view of the poem is and why they think that. This will be recorded on one What is the View sheet.
4. The teacher will then read Maurice Sendak’s book, Where The Wild Things Are and Adam Rubin’s Secret Pizza Party. The students and teacher will follow the same process with these two texts as they did with Shel Silverstein’s “Boa Constrictor” except each student will make their point of view choice and provide evidence on separate What is the View sheets. Students will have a total of 3 sheets when the lesson is completed.
5. The teacher will then provide students with the opportunity to show their understanding by allowing them to partner up, get an iPad, and make three comic strips using Make Beliefs Comix. The teacher will model how to use the comic maker and save it.
1) Get with your assigned partner.
2) One of you get an iPad from the cart.
3) Go to the Internet and type the following web address: www.makebeliefscomix.com.
4) Make three different comic strips. Each comic strip should be written using a different point of view.
5) After completing each comic strip, remember to save it so you can present it to the class.
6) Remember you are working as a team, not as individuals.
