Historical Thinking Skill of Multiple Perspectives

Historical Thinking Skill of Multiple Perspectives

Your parents return from a trip to the grocery store to you and your sister arguing...again! You can't seem to agree on whose turn it is to wash the dishes, and you both have plausible explanations. Your father takes you aside to hear your side of the story, while your mom speaks to your sister. They meet to compare notes and determine who will be washing dishes tonight.

No two people see an event the same way. We are all tainted by our experiences, biases, and preferences. Whether it's a sibling argument, or a historical debate, there are two - and sometimes three - sides to every story.

Watch the video below and practice the skill of interpreting multiple perspectives.
