Introducing Point of View  One thing we will be focusing on was we begin to read the short fiction story "The Quinceañera Text" is explaining how the author develops the point of view of the narrator or speaker in the text. But what is point of view and how can we begin to determine the type of point of view a story is being told from? Let's watch the video below for an introduction.
