Understanding Point of View

Point of view is, in a nutshell, "Who tells the story?" In my experience, however, this simple fact is among the hardest to teach! To truly understand point of view, try writing the same series of events using at least two different points of view. (first person; limited omniscient; omniscient; objective). For even more fun, make sure that a different character tells the story each time!
