Making assumptions about others can hinder our ability to build relationships. When we keep an open mind, we can learn about and respect other’s differences and build stronger relationships.
Identify and understand emotions, values, attitudes, motivations, mindsets, and personal attributes.
Create positive relationships and meaningful connections with family members, classmates, and teachers.
Make rational, ethical, and effective decisions to find the best solutions to problems.
After watching a video about respecting differences in others, students will discuss how to recognize and respect each other’s differences, reflect on times when they made assumptions, and consider how making assumptions impact our ability to respect differences.
“We do not see the world as it is, we see the world as we are.” – Andy Stanley
