Walking in the Shoes of Another
“Do not judge another until you have walked a mile in his moccasins.” Native American Proverb
The stories in this volume are intended to encourage younger children to see the things that happen around them from different perspectives and to try to understand other people’s emotions. Ten stories are told from two different perspectives. Events that might seem strange, unfair or untrue can appear completely different when seen from the viewpoint of someone else. •When an old lady encourages two young boys to help themselves to her strawberries, why does she then get upset when there are none left? •Why is a little boy so thoughtless that he gets chocolate on his classmate’s new dress? Contains ten pairs of photocopiable stories each followed by questions that will stimulate lively discussion, designed to illuminate the perspectives and feelings of the different characters in the stories. Ideal for use in PHSE discussions and by SLTs and therapists working with those with ASD and brain injury, this easy to use resource provides an excellent tool for working in this sometimes difficult area.
Seeing through the Eyes of Another
In this innovative book, the author provides stories that illustrate 15 events from two different perspectives.
These pairs of stories are designed to show how an event that initially seems clear-cut becomes more complicated when viewed from someone else’s point of view. In a simple and clear way the author shows how all stories have more than one side and the importance of not jumping to conclusions or being too quick to judge. Every pair of stories is accompanied by a set of questions for discussion, both after reading the apparently straightforward first story and then after the second once the whole picture becomes clear. Ideal for use in PHSE and ethics discussions, and also by SLTs and other therapists working with those with ASD or brain injury, this photocopiable resource also includes guidance notes for the professional.
