Please complete the following learning activity part 1 then complete the reflection part 2.
LEARNING ACTIVITY PART 1
There are two perspectives on the same event below. However, the two accounts do not align on every detail. Your goal with this Learning Activity is to look at the two accounts below and to make a chronological account of the event that occurred in different words while also making clear where there are contradictions.
You’re a police officer. It’s approximately 7:40 PM, and you’ve been called to the C-Train platform outside of Bow Valley College’s South Campus to investigate a theft. The date is October 21, 2020. When you arrive, the first officer on scene refers you to two witnesses: Peter and Ralph. All the first officer can confirm is that she saw and heard Ralph yelling at Peter.
ACCOUNT 1, PETER:
Listen, I don’t know what that Ralph guy’s problem is. So, I came out through those doors over there [points to doors leading onto train platform from South Campus building]. Just outside the doors, there was a wallet. I bent down and picked it up, and took a few steps more onto the platform, because I was right in front of the doors and didn’t want to block people trying to get out. By the time I actually stopped and opened up the wallet, I was pretty close to the train. I opened it up to look for a driver’s license, and I spotted Ralph’s picture. When I looked up, he ripped it out of my hand and started calling me a thief. I tried to tell him what happened, but he started pushing me. That’s when the other officer came up and separated us.
ACCOUNT 2, RALPH:
I’m not the bad guy here. That dude Peter is. He’s the one who took my wallet. I was just standing on the train platform minding my own business, and I had been for a few minutes. I feel for my wallet to get out my pass because the train’s coming, and it’s gone. Just gone! So I turn around, and he’s right there. He’s got the wallet open, and he’s looking through it. He tries to tell me that he thinks I dropped it, but I’ve never dropped my wallet in my life. I’m not one of those people.
So I grabbed it from him, and I yelled at him for stealing from me. He tried to deny it, but how could he not know it was my wallet if I had dropped it. It would have been right there behind me. That dude then told me he found it by the doors, but I wasn’t near the doors. I was where the train pulled up.
I got close to him, but I didn’t push him. Though would it have mattered? He stole from me. He’s a thief and he deserves what he gets. I’m the victim here! That’s what I told the other cop, too. I don’t know why you people don’t have that thief in cuffs already.
RESOURCES & TIPS:
Do not choose one account and treat it as correct. Instead, incorporate both (though see subsequent tips). Your goal here is not to figure out which account is correct.
Some information is less relevant than other information, so part of this is also figuring that out. You don’t have to include everything a person says.
Make sure to include relevant information like location and time.
Recount events chronologically and insert the two viewpoints where necessary.
It’s fine to say “Peter did X, but Ralph says Peter did Y” in order to make clear that two of the narratives don’t line up properly.
A lot of this activity is about just understanding how to organize information.
Some of the accounts are purposefully confusing. However, that doesn’t mean any are less true.
Do not make assumptions or create facts beyond what’s stated in this document.
When you’re directly quoting one of the accounts, make sure to put it into quotation marks.
HOWEVER, do not only directly quote the accounts. Instead, summarize/paraphrase them into different words.
REFLEXTION PART 2
