Peace Works Toolkit: Perspective

Introduction

In today’s society, we are constantly exposed to a variety of information from different sources. Sometimes, this information can become polarizing, and it is important to learn the importance of seeing things from other people’s perspective. In this lesson, students will learn ways to process their thoughts and feelings and will then practice how to view situations from a different perspective.

These activities give students concrete strategies to practice perspective taking. They help students examine their own feelings, reactions, and putting themselves in someone else’s shoes.
