After reading Esperanza Rising, get students thinking about the differences between third-person and first-person point of view with this creative extension activity! Fifth- and sixth-grade learners will choose a scene from the novel to rewrite from a first-person point of view. Students are provided with a brief review of the key differences between first- and third-person narration, including differences in pronouns and perspective. Then, learners will choose one scene from the novel to rewrite in first-person point of view, jotting down their notes and ideas. Students will then use the second page to write their reimagined scene from the first-person point of view, including inner thoughts and feelings of their chosen narrator.
