Full Curriculum Perspective Taking Understanding Others' Point of View

Understanding Others' Point of View

We understand another’s point of view when we quickly synthesize information from multiple sources such as facial expressions, body language, previous knowledge of that person, tone of voice, and the meaning of their words. We distill that information down to essential elements to make educated guesses of others’ thoughts and feelings.

Perspective Taking

VIDEO MODELING – When we see a problem from another person’s point of view, we try to understand the situation they are in. We think about their circumstances and how they feel. We should think about how we would feel in the same situation.
