Miss Escano

  • Students will be able to differentiate among the first-person, limited-omniscient (third person), and omniscient (third person) points of view.
  • Students will use context clues to generate the meanings of unfamiliar and multiple-meaning words.
  • Students will use Greek and Latin roots and affixes to determine the meanings of words within texts.

South Carolina Standards:

5-1.2, 5-3.1, 5-3.2

review point of view
Review― Point of View
  • What is first-person?
    • Writing using “I” and “we”
  • Something we read that was in first person:

“My name is Peak. Yeah, I know: weird name. But you don’t get to pick your name or your parents. (Or a lot of other things in life for that matter.)”

third person
Third Person
  • Limited Omniscient
    • The narrator can see into the minds of some of the characters, but not all. They usually see through the eyes of the main character.
  • Omniscient
    • The narrator is all-knowing, can interpret events and relate the thoughts and feelings of any character.

Understanding Text
  • Context Clues
    • Sometimes the meaning to a word is in the text around it.
    • You have to read the text before and after the word to figure it out.
  • Let’s try a few…
context clues
Context Clues
  • The first review on the movie was favorable. Many people attended and enjoyed the movie. Some people even saw the movie three times!
    • Negative
    • Uncertain
    • Positive
    • Clear
context clues1
Context Clues
  • Her quiet, timid ways made us guess at her true feelings about the story because she kept her ideas to herself and never spoke in class.
    • Shy
    • Boisterous
    • Kind
    • Seriously
roots and affixes
Roots and Affixes
  • Another way to find the meaning of words
  • The roots at the beginning of a word are called prefixes
roots and affixes1
Roots and Affixes
  • The roots at the end of words are called suffixes
  • Knowing that the root “Ab-” means “Away, apart from”, what can we say abnormal means?
    • Away or apart from normal
  • Exoskeleton?
    • Outside skeleton
  • With suffixes, you may need to read it backwards
  • Baker:
    • One who bakes
  • Lioness:
    • Female lion
prefixes and suffixes
Prefixes and Suffixes
  • If you put both prefixes and suffixes together, you can figure out the meaning of the whole word.
  • Geology
    • “Geo-” means Earth
    • “-logy” means study of
    • Geology = study of Earth

Notice that we have to read the suffix before the prefix to figure out the meaning!
