Step In – Step Out – Step Back
A thinking routine to take social/cultural perspective responsibly
Choose: Identify a person or agent in the situation you are examining.
Step In: Given what you see and know at this time, what do you think this person might feel, believe, know, or experience?
Step out: What else would you like or need to learn to understand this person’s perspective better?
Step back: Given your exploration of this perspective so far, what do you notice about your own perspective and what it takes to take somebody else’s?
