Point of View:
Goldilocks and the Three Bears
1. Essential question
How does the point of view change the way you think about the story?
Students will learn to think critically about the point of view in a story, and create their own version of the story with their own point of view.
3. Mini-lesson activities
The teacher will read aloud to the class the story, "Goldilocks and the Three Bears". She will ask the students questions about the story, "Who is/are the bad guy(s) in this story? Why do you think the characters reacted the way they did? What would you do if you were in this situation?" She will talk about point of view, and explain that Goldilocks and the Bears had very different points of view in this story. We are not told their motives, or what they were thinking however.
The students will then be asked to recreate the story either from Goldilocks, or the three bears point of view. They will be asked to explain the thought process of the characters, and explain their actions from their point of view.
