Evaluating perspective (in a novel or in the workplace, home life, etc.)
Please have a writing utensil ready. I will ask you to respond in writing to the images below on the chart provided. There are no right answers, so just record your thoughts. Please respond to a minimum of three photos.
Time: 4 min.
Small Group Discussion:
Meet in assigned groups to discuss your thoughts. Please allow each person to share their thoughts about each photo.
Large Group Discussion:
How were the perspectives of these images in your group similar? How were they different? What impacts how we see others? What makes the first impression? What makes lasting impressions? Do they remind you of anyone? Yourself?
Next, we will watch two brief videos.
Video #1: As you watch, think about one thought you have from the video about perspective that you would like to share with the group.
Video #2: How do you see yourself? If you were in the photographer's shoes, how would you approach your subject? What would the photo look like? What would be in the background? Do you think others see you in the same light?
Welcome! My name is Amy Pfaff (pronounced FAFF), and I am the sixth-grade homeroom teacher here at Rolling Hills Charter School. I am currently beginning my 19th year of teaching, and have spent 14 of those years teaching in a charter school. I received my Bachelor's of Science degree from Montana State University and earned my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction from Northwest Nazarene University. I am licenses real estate professional and have an MBA.
My teaching experience includes teaching second grade in a southern Montana town, fifth-grade in Idaho Falls, middle-school grades in Vallivue Middle School and Thomas Jefferson Charter School, fourth-grade in Kuna, and fifth-eighth grade at Rolling Hills.
I am currently a Teacher Consultant for Boise State University, and am highly-qualified to teach the subjects that I have been assigned. Growing up in a small town in Northern Idaho has helped me to appreciate the outdoors, and inspired a love of travel. We (my husband and I) thrive in the outdoors and in discovering new places of adventure. Whenever possible, we are on our bikes, camping, hiking, taking pictures, roasting food over an outdoor fire, or blending up strange concoctions in our VitaMix. My secret hidden talent is renovating paddle boards, and I am currently working on my fourth! We have a cat named Darla who thinks she runs our house. She might.
Please feel free to contact me at any time. I'm glad I get to work with you!
