If everyone sees people situations the world differently
If EVERYONE sees people, situations, the world DIFFERENTLY…

Is this a good / bad thing?

Is what we read /see true?

Are there any actual “facts”?

What factors shape our perceptions of the world?

How does perception/perspective affect everything we know or learn?


Do teens see things differently
Do DIFFERENTLY…TEENS see things differently?

We used to think that teens respond differently to the world because of hormones, or attitude, or because they simply need independence. But when adolescents' brains are studied through magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we see that they actually work differently than adult brains.


Many teen subjects failed to interpret DIFFERENTLY…

the emotion in faces like this one as fear.

The adults correctly identified the expression

as fear. Yet the teens answered

"shocked, surprised, angry."

And the teens and adults used different parts of their

brains to process what they were feeling.

The teens mostly used the amygdala, (uh-mig-duh-luh) a

small almond shaped region that guides instinctual or

"gut“ reactions, while the adults relied on the frontal

cortex, which governs reason and planning.


Amygdala vs frontal cortex
Amygdala vs Frontal Cortex DIFFERENTLY…

  • When reading emotion, teens (left) rely more on the amygdala, while adults (right) rely more on the frontal cortex.



Due to this in social studies people must develop a critical perspective
Due to this, in Social Studies people must develop a different?“Critical Perspective”

This means…

-questioning what you read

-looking for more information

-cross – checking facts

-looking for bias,

one-sided arguments



To sum up
To sum up… drawing?

OR

You can spend your time explaining your view to others and also trying to see things from other perspectives
