Lesson 11: The Same, But Different

In this lesson, students will learn that people can have different points of view about the same thing.


You Can Try This at Home

With your child, discuss a time when you had a different point of view than someone else about the same thing. Describe how your experiences—what you’ve seen, heard, or done in your life—affect your point of view.

 

Lesson 12: Ask, Listen, Learn

In this lesson, students will learn that asking questions, listening, and observing can help you learn more about someone’s point of view when you don’t understand it.


You Can Try This at Home

Tell your child about a time when learning more about a different point of view helped you have empathy. Encourage your child to think of future situations where it might be helpful to learn more about a different point of view in order to get along and show they care.

 

Lesson 13: Seeing It Differently

In this lesson, students will practice listening, asking questions, and observing to learn more about another person’s point of view.


You Can Try This at Home

Discuss with your child how learning more about someone’s point of view can help you have empathy for them. Encourage your child to think of a time when they had empathy for someone or someone had empathy for them.

 

Lesson 14: Changing Your Mind

In this lesson, students will learn that better understanding someone’s point of view can change your own point of view and how you act.


You Can Try This at Home

Ask your child to describe a time when learning more about a different point of view changed their own thoughts or actions. Tell your child about a time when this happened to you.

 

Lesson 15: A New Point of View

In this lesson, students will practice asking questions to better understand someone’s point of view when it’s harder to empathize.


You Can Try This at Home

Discuss with your child the benefits of learning more about the different points of view of people in your family. If there’s a point of view they don’t understand, think of questions together that they can ask to learn more about it.
