TOOL 2.7 – THE STORY FROM DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW

AIMS OF THE ACTIVITY
Through a small narrative method, the objective is to test how reality is different if told from different points of view based on different assumptions, beliefs or priorities. By telling the same story in the first person by the various protagonists of the story itself, will be able to experience how each story is consistent and legitimate if it is read from the perspective of the character he portrays. This type of exercise, the map decentralization, is especially useful for working with young people who bring us a point of view, values and beliefs about the world, different from ours.
DESCRIPTION / METHODOLOGY
It is read a short story or very simple story but where there are at least three characters, that in the story have very different points of view (is attached as an example the story of the camel who could read). The facilitator then asks participants to split them into many subgroups as there are main characters of the story and to tell the story as would tell that character. The groups rewrite first-hand the testimony of the character. Back in plenary we read the stories and you can appreciate the differences of stories based on the map and look at the character who tells it.
