Wonderful PPT! Thank you so much. It's exactly the kind of PPT I've been looking for.

My kids love PowerPoints, especially interactive ones. As a first year teacher it makes my day to see PowerPoints that I can find and use instead of creating all new ones. I'd love to see any and all powerpoints that you have!

I am interested in powerpoints. I am a new teacher and anything helps!!!!!

I'm glad it worked out for me. I like to make things that are interactive or that incorporate technology. The kids seem to be more engaged as soon as they see that projector rolled out!

I might have other powerpoints that you'd be interested in. What topics are you looking for? I think that's all i have for author's viewpoint.

that I used the powerpoint the other day and it was just the thing that many students needed to begin to understand that words can help them identify author's viewpoint. When they did their testing yesterday, many of them were able to look at the words that expressed feelings == something they were unable to do just a few days before. Thanks again!

Thanks so much for that powerpoint. Do you have others?

risingsprings 09-18-2007 02:51 AM

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for! Now I just need my light bulb in my smart board and we'll be watching it in reading!

You were so thoughtful to share. Thanks again!

Here's a powerpoint that i created last year for an observation lesson on author's viewpoint (i also teach HM 4th).
I used the highlight tool (bottom left of screen in slide show mode) to highlight the author's facts and opinions that led the reader to infer his/her viewpoint.

Thx! It's been a tough couple of days explaining this! One thing that was in H-M that I found helpful too --they took a passage where the man shakes hands w/ others of different colors, and we read that once, then I read the same passage and instead of shaking hands, he "stares at" them-- it gives an entirely diff meaning to the passage.

It's hard getting kids to understand that "they" have an automated view when they're writing and so does everyone else, but when you're an author EVERY word has a specific meaning.

Alas, I trudge I add similies! yahoo!

I used The Pain and The Great One. It really made my kiddos understand perspective. We were required to start with this skill also and I don't think they were quite ready. There is a huge jump between third and fourth and most of my guys are still operating on a literal level.

actually 'critical literacy' which takes a whole lot more than 1 week. I don't think it can really be "explained" either. You're going to need to find some books that actually contradict each other, as well as ones that contradict many of your fourth grade opinions. After charting their opinions and the kid's opinions, they will start to see. But I still think this is one THE most important things we teach (because it also deals with issues of power in writing and being an informed reader), so you should keep it up all year.

I stumbled across a great idea. Read them the original story of the Three Little Pigs, which is in third person with the narrator outside the story, and then read them The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. In this book the wolf tells the story first person, inside the story. The students loved it and really started to get it. They seemed to grasp that a character inside the story is first person, and someone outside telling the story was third. We even discussed the pronouns involved in each viewpoint.
This was a great "hook" for students. I haven't tested them yet, but they seem to get it.

This week in our H-M Reading the strategy focus is author's viewpoint. I'm having a really hard time explaining this to the students (they just don't seem to understand that there is a REAL person who writes stories and have feelings/opinions of THEIR own and it comes through their writing if you're looking for it!)....anyone have any supplemental ideas that I can add to help them understand it and help me to explain it better? I'm not doing it any justice at this point! But I'd like to do better!

Thanks for any ideas/tips/suggestions! I sure would appreciate it!
