The goal of this lesson is to help students reflect on how our perspectives might affect the ways we see everything around us.
Through Different Eyes is a great place to start this process. It provides a way to review themes from earlier in the course and allows students to reflect on their assumptions about the value of scientific and non-scientific perspectives.
Students are asked to articulate their understanding of the nature of science and how it differs from, and relates to, other disciplines. The discussion can continue with ways in which science relates to other areas of knowledge and whether it supersedes these other areas.
You can use the prompt “Through Different Eyes” from the Models and Methods Journal Prompts to have students journal in class and capture how they were affected by the activity.Download all files for this topic
