Author's Point of View Worksheets

Related ELA Standard: RI.7.6

Core Standard

Before composing any major work an author often decides on a basic plot for a story, but then they must decide the point of view that they wish to tell the story from. Do they use a character that is active in the story and tell the story from a first-person perspective? Authors often will use a narrator that is a detached observer of the action as it unfolds. This would place the story in the third-person objective. Very skilled writers can also immerse their readers in the story and tell it from the second person perspective. This is a critical literary device for any work because it entirely determines how your audience views the world you have created. It will in turn change how they feel toward the work. These worksheets help students identify the point of view the author has set in motion for them.
