Who Did It? A Lesson in Perspective

Point of view1

By Michelle Lynn Senters-

A NARRATOR tells a story from his or her point of view or perspective.

  1. Determine who is telling the story above: dog, girl, or an observer (parent, sibling, friend).
  2. Write in FIRST-PERSON, meaning the narrator is giving a personal account about what happened. First-person point of view uses the words “I” and “we”.
  3. Include VOICE. Use words that convey the narrator’s attitude, personality, and character.
  4. Write the same story in the voice of a different narrator.
  5. Feel free to post your short story below.
