Transcript

  • 1. Have you ever convinced yourself that you were right about something, but when a different perspective was introduced — such as another person’s opinion or an influential movie or article — you realized you were wrong? It’s not necessary (and it’s probably very unrealistic) to think that you can gather a variety of perspectives before you make every decision. But there will be times when multiple perspectives would really help to answer a complex question or resolve a difficult problem. With your group, look at a copy of Raphael’s painting, The School of Athens (see the second page of this worksheet). Take 2 minutes to discuss what you see and your initial reactions to the painting. Your teacher may ask you to share some of your impressions with the class. Once you’ve finished, your teacher will ask your group to come up with a list of questions an historian, chemist, artist, or mathematician might ask about the painting. Work with your group to come up with your list. Once each group has finished, your teacher will ask your group to share its ideas with the class. After hearing the different questions that different disciplines might ask about the painting, did you hear anything that lead you to rethink your initial reaction to the painting?
