Purpose & Point of View   

1        109

Students will discern both the author's and their characters' points of view within the text. This will include analyzing how an author's choices contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact. Students will analyze cases in which grasping a point of view requires distinguishing what is directly stated in a text from what is really meant (e.g., satire, sarcasm, irony, or understatement).
