Bringing Empathy into Your Classroom

Edutopia recently curated several recent resources on empathy.

Lauren Owen has a piece titled, “Empathy  in the Classroom: Why Should I Care?”…

That year, empathy became a central component of my classroom instruction. Given that I taught history, empathy naturally lent itself to discussions of varying perspectives about and intentions of history’s key players. The deeper our discussions went, though, the more convinced I became that empathy needed to be a central piece in every school setting.
