Empathy Lessons

This year 7A Social Studies Teacher, April Allen, is devoting two days per quarter in Social Studies class to empathy lessons, and this one was all about finding a “common.” Each period and in HR Miss Allen puts the seating chart on the board and students had to write 1-3 names of people they’ve never spoken to or are not in the same circle of friends. Students then watched the link below and were assigned a partner/group. They had to share a bucket list item, someone or something that inspires them, and find one unique thing they have in common. The outcome was amazing!
