OPV (Other People’s Views)

Encourages pupils to view the other person’s point of view on a particular issue or topic.

This method encourages pupils to view the other person’s/opposing point of view on a particular issue or topic. Pupils think about how sharing opinions can help to gain new perspectives on factors, consequences and objectives that underpin the issue in question. Pupils think about how a particular point of view might be relevant for the person holding it, but how it should not be imposed on others. See the Consider All Factors activity for ideas on collating a list of comprehensive factors affecting an issue
