This allows the student to think and make a stance on what their view would be, upon the lesson with multiple views. The students benefit more with various views of an event or story. They can use their minds to take a stance on a side or view and to have knowledge of the overall event.
A different lesson I would use to compare voices/views would be that of the Dust Bowl Era in Kern County. I would use sides of the Okies (immigrants) and that of the locals. It’s a local event in history, it would be beneficial to the students to know about how this era in Kern County has occurred and how the differences in our cultures has had a negative impact and its actions.

The External Insider was socialized within another culture and has acquired its beliefs, values, behaviors, attitudes and knowledge. They are considered by parents and new community as an adopted insider.
The External Outsider is socialized within a community different from the one in which he or she is teaching. Has a partial understanding of and little appreciation of community in which he or she is teaching. They misinterpret the behaviors of students and parents.
