Analyzing Author's Point of View

To understand an author's point of view, a reader must consider the author's experience and the argument being made. Point of view is conveyed through language; therefore, students must look closely at what an author says and connect it back to what they author knows and believes. This process will help readers identify point of view.

Our lessons are "the how" to meet the expectations defined by the standards. Click on the links below to view our quick reference table that maps standards to literacy lessons.
