“Seeing” Through Someone Else’s Eyes

RAHWAY — Students in Susan Bechelli’s fifth grade class at Grover Cleveland School in Rahway recently read a story about a young Native American who had trouble competing in a bow and arrow contest due to impaired vision.

In order to experience the young man’s plight, students donned glasses liberally smeared with Vaseline, and then attempted to hit a bull’s eye with a ball with the blurred vision. The class then wrote about the experience and related how frustrating it must have been for the character in the story, who had no remedy to correcting his impairment.
