A Matter of Perspective 30 min

In this activity ask students to think about three instances where an event happened and two sides of the story were expressed. Pull from entertainment, social media, the news, personal experience, anywhere online.

Ask students what they know, what they have learned, or what is the current feeling on the incident?

What was the primary focus of the event?

Has anything changed in their minds or the minds of the public because of how it was shown?  Why or why not? 

Inform students that social media can often be misleading due to the perspective from which the post is coming from.  3 people could be at the same event and push out 3 completely different perspectives.

Use the following prompts to hold a class dialogue about social media:

The question is, what is our personal responsibility when communicating via social media? 

Is there a personal responsibility? If so, what does it look like? 

What happens when others are irresponsible?
