Illustrated

Skater Girl's 5th Grade class has been talking about point of view. The class, who have been steeped in Stranger Danger warnings from a very early age, found the whole idea of third person point of view disturbing. I failed to understand why they were concerned even after the teacher's example story of a family eating dinner that included the parents and children for first person and an observer for third person was related. Skater Girl literally drew me a picture as an explanation:

oh, the omnipotent stalker POV... LOL... i have such mixed emotions about the imaginative mind of this skater girl. my first instinct was to belly laugh because i could see my students drawing the same picture. my second instinct was concern for the way this new generations minds work.
