Perspective

Perspective has a Latin root meaning "look through" or "perceive," and all the meanings of perspective have something to do with looking. Perspective taking is the ability to look beyond your own point of view, so that you can consider how someone else may think or feel about something. It's where you consider someone else's thoughts and feelings about something to see things from their perspective. Having perspective is essential for the interpretation of “why” and “how” situations happen and the capacity to respond appropriately. When one can grasp another’s perspective, they are more likely to be empathetic, anticipate other’s behaviour or thinking, handle conflicts peacefully, be less judgmental, value differences, and act in ways that are more helpful, supportive and kind. The activities sourced and designed provide opportunities for children and students to ‘walk in another’s shoes’ and examine different aspects of their own lives. Mastering perspective and sense making is a habit that students need for every part of life—from handling friendship conflicts today to mastering boardroom debates tomorrow.

WHAT DOES THE BIG BAD WOLF SAY

Concepts of perspective, ‘point of view’, and empathy are explored via a storybook inquiry about The True Story of the Three Little Pigs! by Jon Scieszka. Traditionally readers sympathise with the three pigs. In the retelling of the three little pigs, the author changes the point of view of the story and shares the wolf’s story. The story also investigates themes relating to truth. Which version of the Three Little Pigs depicts the truth? Could each version be true?
