Is Mr. Wolf Really A Bad Guy?
Is the wolf from "The Three Little Pigs" really big and bad, or is he just misunderstood? To analyze the effect of point of view, middle schoolers read Jon Scieszka's The True Story of the Three Little Pigs and evaluate the information as they read. They identify the author's point of view and identify another point of view, which they elucidate in a narrative. Additionally, they create a story map about how the author's point of view colors what they write about.
