This week’s lesson focused on seeing things differently. After we spent time making homemade hummus and munching on it with some pita chips, we read a poem that means something completely different when it’s read forward than when it’s read backwards. The students discussed how important it is to look at things from different perspectives and to pay attention to order, meaning, and context. We then worked on a challenge where we had to add punctuation and capitalization in order to make a love letter have a completely different meaning. We finished by looking at optical illusions and trying to see them in different ways. We realized the importance of trying to look at things in ways that other people do in order to really understand other perspectives.
