This lesson guides students to explain how a narrator’s point of view influences readers’ feelings and attitudes by analyzing the author's word choices. Students will be asked to identify and analyze patterns in the author's word choices as they relate to descriptive language. The day begins with students rereading the text independently. Prior to rereading the text, inform students that to answer the text dependent questions, they need to be aware of the point of view expressed in the text. Students may work in small groups or with partners as they return to the text to explore questions, capturing their thinking on the student guided notes sheet. The focus question should be completed independently. Special Materials: Copies of text, "Casey at the Bat" Student notes sheet
