Video: ‘Roots of Empathy’ program at Beauvoir Elementary School aims to reduce student aggression

Beauvoir Elementary School is using toddlers to help raise social and emotional competence and increase empathy within the classroom in order to reduce aggression.

The “Roots of Empathy” curriculum has nine themes that are specialized for students in grades kindergarten through eighth. A certified instructor meets with the students before and after the family visits to prepare each theme or review what they saw.
