Point of view: witness reports

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson

Read and listen to three witness reports of a skateboard crash. Notice that each report presents a different point of view. Look at a model report to see how past tense verbs and opinion adjectives shape the point of view in a text. Build reports by choosing verbs and adverbs to reflect each witness's point of view. Include the place and times, sequence of events, inferences and facial expressions. This learning object is one in a series of three objects.

Students identify the features of a recount (report).
Students identify the point of view in spoken and written recounts.
Students produce texts that express a consistent point of view.
