We have looked at how textbooks and maps can lead us to develop a single story about people and events. Our concluding activity for this question will ask you to show your understanding of how perspective can manipulate our understanding of the world around us.
You may choose one of the following activities:
- Find a map, news article or video that attempts to manipulate your perspective of a person or an event.
- IMPORTANT: Do not use an editorial because they are designed to persuade.
- Summarize the map, article or video in a brief paragraph. (Who, What, When, Where, How)
- Analyze how the article is manipulative. (Clearly connect to class content)
- Attach the map or article. Provide a link to videos.
- Create a listicle.
- A listicle asks you to generate a list of important ideas and explain them in brief sentences.
- Your listicle should have three different points and a brief paragraph of explanation for each.
- Each point you make should answer our essential question; how is perspective manipulated?
- You may draw from themes and examples seen in class, but you must also contribute at least one unique idea or example.
