St. Croix Central Elementary School honored students of the month on March 4 who exemplified empathy best.
After the honorees were named, the kindergarten class gave examples of self-control, March’s theme.
Does giving awards help or hurt empathy?
A problem could be that it turns empathy into a competition and competition can block empathy.
An alternative would be for other students to share how they were affectied by what the students did.
we need to look into this more.
