Who wrote or narrates the story?
What audience is it for?
What purpose does it serve?

Extra Credit: Go see the Harriet movie. Write down your answers, take a selfie with your family or friends, and attach the picture and ticket to your paper. :) AMC has discounts on Tuesdays!

Point of View is critical. It frames the narrative and automatically sets up a connection between the narrator and the reader-- whether the narrator is good or evil, right or wrong, or even if they are not the hero of the story-- like To Kill a Mockingbird.
We need to ask ourselves questions - regardless of the media or genre- about the p.o.v. and its purpose.
