English Unit 3 Reflection: Perspective and Prejudice

At the start of the unit, I wrote that perspective change our understanding of the world because not all perspective are correct and that we might get a wrong idea of things by looking at it from a wrong perspective. At that time, I did not know much about stereotypes or ‘us’ vs ‘them’ mentality and therefore I had a vague idea of what perspective really was. However, now that I learned about this unit, I know that in perspective, there are things like stereotypes involved. In the Outsiders, I found out that like the Socs and the Greasers, even though they had a stereotypical idea of each other, people can overcome these stereotypes to change their understanding of the world around them. Now I think that perspectives are a strong idea in which one’s understanding of the world changes. The-outsiders-19
