Point of view writing can be used in subject areas across the curriculum to get students involved in the material they are studying. Often in the English class limit students’ writing about literature to theme development, character analysis, and plot summary. Similarly, in history, science, health and other subject classes, we focus students’ writing on content summary and analysis. Point of view encourages students to take an in-depth look at concepts they re studying. It invites students to immerse themselves in an idea, a topic, a character, even an organism, by looking at it through different eyes.
