POINT OF VIEW:

POINT OF VIEW LESSON IN NARRATIVE WRITING

POINT OF VIEW:

POINT OF VIEW When you are writing, you must determine the point of view , or perspective, in which you will write. Then you must be consistent in that point of view.

PowerPoint Presentation:

I register for college classes in early August. (first person singular) We register for college classes in early August. (first person plural) You register for college classes in early August. (second person singular and/or plural) Rule of thumb: avoid the second person universal “YOU” in personal and informative essay writing . He registers for college classes in early August. (third person singular) They register for college classes in early August. (third person plural) A refresher on “person”…

FIRST PERSON:

FIRST PERSON In the first person point of view one character tells the story. This character reveals only personal thoughts and feelings of what s/he sees. The writer uses pronouns such as "I" or "me" or "my." Example: I woke up this morning feeling terrific. I hopped out of bed excited to start the new day.

THIRD PERSON:

(plural) Note that the first and third person pronouns (I, he or she and we or they) have been replaced by nouns. To accomplish objectivity, or “stepping back,” a writer uses….

PowerPoint Presentation:

The primary view for informative writing is typically third person objective. However, a current trend in informative writing combines first person experience, research and observations with third person objective factual writing.

SECOND PERSON:

SECOND PERSON With the second person point of view the narrator tells the story using the pronoun "you".  The character is someone similar to you. Example: You jump out of bed feeling really terrific. Then you hop out of bed excited to start the new day. You know that today is the day that your big surprise will come.

PowerPoint Presentation:

You will see that I do not follow my own advice about avoiding second person. I’ve written much of this PowerPoint in second person. The reason is because this PowerPoint is a tutorial . I’m speaking directly to YOU , as if you were a student in my class. Please note…
