Facts are usually indisputable but depending on how you view the facts will determine your decision based on the facts. An interpretation does not negate the facts, but it does put it in context of more factors that have to be considered. For instance, you may steal a car, but if you stole the car to drive your critically injured friend to the hospital you, would have greater favor with the person making a judgment. These worksheets will help students learn to look at facts when set into context.

How Can Facts Be Interpreted in Different Ways?
Facts are the proven ideas that are widely accepted as true by a majority of people because they have been argued for their truthfulness by someone who substantiated his or her argument to the audience's satisfaction completely. Based on how they are making sense and in what context, one can interpret a fact in various ways for his or her use. However, ethical teachings demand that any interpretation of a fact, regardless of how it is done, must not try to prove the fact itself wrong or go against it using any manipulative strategy. Here are a few ways that can help you interpret and understand any fact:
Interpretation Through Context
Any factual information given in a particular context derives its meaning from the context and may not make a clear sense when reading all alone. It is better to read the context in which a fact is being stated and then try to relate these two elements to interpret a fact rightly and differently.
Interpretation Through the Fact's History
A widely accepted and a repeatedly stated fact usually has a history of years after passing through which it was proved. To interpret any fact in a way that has never been argued before, you can read the history of the fact's acceptance and under what particular circumstances it was proved. Going on the deeper levels and trying to understand a fact in a detailed manner can help one in drafting its different and new interpretations.
Interpretation Through Interchanging the Cause and Effect
A fact is usually a combination of a cause that has a particular effect. We can understand and interpret a fact differently by interchanging the positions of the cause and the effect and then making new inferences without changing the original sense.
