Through Their Eyes: How do authors use point of view and perspective to affect their readers’ experience of a story? In this narrative writing set, students read short fiction with unique perspectives from favorite authors such as Naomi Shihab Nye, Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe, James Joyce, and Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Students use these classic tales as models for their own personal narratives focusing on point of view and perspective. View lessons >>
