It’s a truth of life: perspective – your view and thoughts about things – changes with distance. Whatever the topic, the further you drill down, the more things change from a fifth-grade test question to a doctorate’s dissertation.

Perspective is exactly why we learn social studies in elementary school and why we teach about the peoples of the Andes and study colonial America. What seems so clear to us from afar is often complex and murky when we look closer.  We should do so more often.

Here are some vignettes about perspective. It’s something I like to harp on a lot, and I think it makes us better human beings.

Enjoy
