Conflicts between perspectives and points of view

Pick one of the following questions and answer it to the best of your ability in an essay of at least three pages, making references to at least two of the readings in chapter 4&5 in the text book. You should select essays that most match your own experience/ story.

Question one
Write about a time you had a major conflict with someone over an issue. Explain the argument as completely as you can. What was your point of view? What was the other persons point of view? How were both of your points of view based on your own personal perspective?

Question two
Write about a time you changed your mind about a deeply held position you once held. What was your position before? What caused it to change? How is your perspective and point of view represented in both the before and after position.
