Contemplating 360 Degrees
In my teaching of adolescents I suggest that every situation has a 360 degree perception about it. If you are able to see a situation from all perspectives, all around it, you would be seeing it from 360 degrees and understand it wholly. But that’s impossible, of course, despite people often believing they know the absolute truth about something.
So I ask my students, “From how many degrees are you seeing this situation? What can you do to increase that number?”
