Comparing Perspectives

Multiple Perspectives is one of my favorite concepts from Kaplan's Depth and Complexity to teach. I think particularly for our little ones-who believe the world revolves around them :) -this is a difficult concept. Not only to put yourself in the shoes of another but then compare how two or more characters view the world.

We are reading a chapter book right now called The Wild Robot. 

I asked my students to compare the perspectives of several different characters-how would they describe the robot in the story.

We did the same thing with The Lorax. It was hard for them not to just describe him but to describe him from the point of view of another character. The Once-ler and the Truffula Trees viewed the Lorax very differently.

helpful, savior for the trees-annoying, wasting time for the Once-ler

Pin It!
