Point Of View

Perceptions and Interpretations

Visual Perception

Visual Perceptions are unique to each individual even though they may generally be shared by a group. While many may express the same perception, there is no way to tell if your viewpoint is 100% exactly the same as anyone else's.

Points of view and perception in writing

This is an excellent standard to address for any class. One person could read an article or book and perceive completely different things from the material read. One focus of the Standard I chose was the "CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.8.6" Which is "Determine an author's point of view or purpose in a text and analyze how the author acknowledges and responds to conflicting evidence or viewpoints." For the implementation aspect of this standard I chose an article that included a young ladies blog who wrote about an incident at her school involving dress codes. This is a huge issue that will absolutely attract my students to the content being taught.


After a read a loud and student discussion groups, We discuss the points of view and the 5 major "Wh's" (Who, What, Where, When, and Why), then we break down the article into points of views and why we feel the author viewpoints were this, and the response to criticism/conflicting ideas. etc.
