Modes of Third-Person Narration Lesson

This is the second of a two-part lesson on narrative perspective.  The first lesson covered first, second, and third-person narration.  This lesson covers modes of third-person narration: objective, limited, and omniscient narration.  I’ve found that students often struggle with modes of third-person narration and that distinguishing between these modes of narration is a skill that deserves a special focus.

Modes of Third-Person Narration Lesson – This animated PowerPoint lesson explains the differences between third-person objective, limited, and omniscient narration.  It includes practice problems after the lesson to help you assess student understanding.
