Point of view: witness reports

TLF ID L936

Read and listen to three witness reports of a skateboard crash. Notice that each report presents a different point of view. Look at a model report to see how past tense verbs and opinion adjectives shape the point of view in a text. Build reports by choosing verbs and adverbs to reflect each witness's point of view. Include the place and times, sequence of events, inferences and facial expressions.
