Understanding point of view

  1. 1. UNDERSTANDING POINT OF VIEW English IV
  2. 2. POINT OF VIEW  Every person on earth has a personal viewpoint on things and this viewpoint depends on how we were raised, what we know and how we apply our knowledge to our experiences.  Our point of view may change over time to include opinions, belief systems, or ideas about life.
  3. 3. CHANGES:  Change occurs when we get outside of our comfort zone and look at things from other’s perspectives.
  4. 4. EXAMPLE:
  5. 5. ROLE REVERSAL  Pretend you are Little Red Riding Hood. What is your perspective of the events of your day when you went to your grandmother’s house?  Now, look at the story from the perspective of the wolf. How does the story differ?
  6. 6. DON’T JUDGE TOO QUICKLY  As with any story or event, there are always more than one perspective or way of looking at a sequence of events.  Before writing anything, use perspective. This is not easy if you have strict beliefs, but it is well worth trying so you can come to a deeper understanding of others and the events that shape our lives and stories.
  7. 7. ASSIGNMENT:  Using the state library web site, find opposing viewpoints articles. Read two from each perspective.  Write a paper from the point of view that is opposite your own personal point of view.  Remember to cite sources.
