Point of View Comic Strip Project

Looking for a fun way to give students practice with point of view? Students will make connections to first, second, and third-person narration as well as objective, limited, and omniscient modes of narration while working on this awesome project. Students will express themselves creatively while improving their understanding of point of view, and you’ll get some great students work to display on your boards. Check it out:

Point of View Comic Strip Project – Students create four comic strips, each demonstrating a different mode of narration.  This project sheet contains examples as well as a scoring rubric to help guide your evaluation.

    This is great! Thank you for sharing. I just wondered if you could show us an example of the finished project with all four points of view so I can show an example to my students. It would be much appreciated. Thanks again!
