Oklahoma Academic Standard 3. The student will examine important events and historical figures in the nation’s past.

Objective 3.1 Explain why people may see events from different points of view.

In a Nutshell

An important concept and skill of historical understanding relies upon the ability to consider and weigh differing views or perspectives toward the same event. Students can begin to explore why points of view matter through the identification of different opinions that individuals may hold toward the same event. Students should also begin to appreciate that the expression and acceptance of opposing opinions is important to the democratic principles of equality and mutual respect.  

Teacher Action 

Student Action 

  • Provide opportunities for students to examine primary and secondary sources and gather information from such sources which reflect different points of view.

  • Assist students in defining point of view and provide examples relevant to the student’s experiences.

  • Compare two or more primary and/or secondary sources about a particular event in history or current event to develop an understanding of point of view.

  • Ask and respond to various levels of open-ended questions on a regular basis in order to examine multiple perspectives toward the same event. 

Key Concepts 


  • perspective, point of view 

  • influence of personal experiences on one's point of view 

  • Some students may have difficulty grasping the concept that all accounts of an event are biased to a certain degree; therefore, consideration of multiple viewpoints helps us understand an event fully.
