The Writer Uses Voice
  • a) By revealing specifics and significant
  • information to the reader
  • b) By choosing the right word or phrase to spark
  • meaning
  • c) By using the right pace, beat, and punctuation
  • to create fluency
  • d) By deciding on a point of view that accurately
  • reveals the writer, the character and/
    or
  • characters, and the way the world is
    seen
  • through their eyes

  • (Murray, 1996)

7
  • POINT of View
  • the perspective
  • from which
  • a story is told

8
Authors Point of View
  • 1st Person The narrator writes I
  • I opened the door as quietly as I could, sure
    that the slightest creak would wake the baby and
    Id spend another hour trying to stop her
    screaming.

9
  • Limited 3rd person The narrators
    knowledge is limited to that
    of one or a few characters.
  • Antoinette felt no shame in asserting that she,
    her parents real daughter, should be given
    more than her adopted sister. But it seemed to
    her that it was Laura they showered with extra
    affection and expensive gifts.

10
  • Omniscient 3rd person The narrator is looking
    down on the action of the story, seeing all and
    knowing what is inside every characters mind.
  • Jordan was finally quiet, and Lisas stupid
    insistence on checking one more time could only
    be rewarded with another hour of the poor childs
    exhausted screaming.
  • Dennis Levine (2000)

11
FOCUS
  • My focus today deals with decisions writers make
    when choosing the point of view for their
    stories.
  • Why is it important to teach?
  • Why is it important to learn?

12
  • Ive already shown that point of view is an
    important factor in ones voice.
  • When evaluating ones audience, point of view is
    also an important consideration.
  • Writing convincing dialogue relies on characters
    point of view
  • The genres of persuasion, debate, and argument
    combine several points of view to be effective.
  • According to Donald Murray, Hearing myself
    allows me to hear others. The farther I go into
    myself, the more I can enter the lives of others
    enter the lives different from me, the more I
    understand myself. (1996)
  • So point of view helps the writer understand
    himself and others, as well.

13
What are some strategies that help the writer
choose point of view?
  • Write the story from several characters points
    of view ( like the song)
  • In persuasive or argumentative papers, always
    write the opposing view to have a clearer
    perspective of ones own point of view.
  • Writing about what the chapter or position
    wasnt helped me to see what it was.
  • Romano
    (2004)
  • Read the story aloud to oneself and really listen
    to the voices.

14
  • Donald Murray states
  • To develop your voice, the voice of your own
    texts, look to what you have written and are
    writing. Read it aloud as you write and after you
    have written, note what works, what feels right
    to you as you do it. List those qualities and
    develop them. (1990)

15
ACTIVITY
  • Now read a 5th graders paragraph that has little
    voice.
  • Rip in the Pants by a 5th grader
  • Just about a week ago my teacher had a rip in
    his pants. It was really funny. I didnt see it
    right away but someone told me. Then I saw it and
    wanted to laugh but I held it in. Then someone
    told him and everyone started to laugh. Then he
    went home to change. The End

16
Your Turn
  • Write about the teachers ripped pants from
    different points of view. Remember to use the
    other elements of voice. Then share.
  • The teacher
  • A student who likes the teacher
  • A student who does not like the teacher
  • The pants

  • (Culham,2004)

17
MODIFICATIONS
  • Advanced and gifted students
    Compare/contrast point of view in two works on
    same subject.
  • Christopher Marlowes poem, The Passionate
    Shepherd to His Love
  • Sir Walter Raleighs response, The Nymphs
    Reply to Shepherd
  • ESL or Special Ed students
  • Use a picture with several people showing
    different responses.
  • Have students write from each persons point
    of view.
