Step Inside Connections and Extension

Students’ responses can be written down so that various perspectives can be examined and contrasted. This might take the form of a grid in which the perspectives are listed at the top and the three questions down the left-hand side.  Using the grid, a teacher might ask, whose position seems the most similar to each?  Different? Most like your own?

As a follow up students can perform their responses of the perspective they are imagining. Have students improvise and role-play various situations in which their characters might be involved. Or stage a debate between the characters, with students or groups of students asking and answering questions from their chosen perspectives.
