Lesson Plan: Rethinking “Content” – The Four Truths


This “Rethinking Content – Four Truths” lesson plan [PDF] takes learners – both those new to audience centered experiences and those versed in the concepts – through an investigation of the many sources of content and the idea of the Four Truths. It is targeted at a seasonal audience, though it will be useful at all developmental levels.


At the end of the session trainees should be able to:

  • Identify the 4 kinds of truths and explore examples for a particular topic.
  • Explain how including and acknowledging multiple truths can help meet the 3-fold goals of interpretation.
  • Illustrate how visitors can contribute to the content of the interpretive experience.
