Perspective of an Ugly Christmas Sweater

Multiple Perspectives is one of my favorite concepts of Kaplan's Depth and Complexity.  I think it really helps the students learn to think about a character's motives and also teaches them empathy.

I showed my students pictures of ugly Christmas sweaters (and it was funny, they still thought they were pretty). I told them about how workplaces and schools have contests for the ugliest sweater--how would it feel to be one of those sweaters? Are you glad to be able to get out of the closet and be worn or are you depressed because you are considered ugly.
