Engage your students in thinking critically about perspective and point of view with this set of paired passages task cards. There are a total of 10 fiction stories that make up the 5 sets of paired passages.
Each set of paired passages shows the same event from a different perspective and some have varied points of view (1st and 3rd only). You can use the paired passages TOGETHER to deeply enrich your students' thinking or separately with the reflection tasks to reinforce concepts of point of view and perspective.
