Teaching Teachers To Teach Civility And Empathy - All Things Considered | Smart Media | Scoop.it

A professor at the University of New Hampshire who studies school violence says teaching our students civility and empathy can help make schools safer for kids.

 

Malcolm Smith is extension professor at the UNH Department of Education. He worked with lawmakers in 2011 to develop a law on school safety and bullying prevention, and he’s the founder of the Courage to Care program, a curriculum aimed at increasing empathy and civility in middle school students.

From Mine to Ours: Nurturing Empathy in Children

From Mine to Ours: Nurturing Empathy in Children | Smart Media | Scoop.it

Studies show children are born equipped to be empathic, but these skills take time and practice to develop.

 

Empathic children are aware of their own feelings and individuality; are able to relate to common feelings while also distinguishing their own emotions from the feelings of others; can imagine how others might feel in a given situation and respond in a way they imagine might be comforting to that person....

 

An Empathy Timeline

Some studies suggest that the development of empathy has its roots in infancy, though it takes many years for this skill to mature. Babies as young as 6 months old begin using social referencing, looking to the reactions of a parent or caretaker to gauge the safety of a situation or new person. Research suggests that children as young as 14 months offer to help an adult who is struggling to reach something....

Major benefits for students who attend live theater, study finds: theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance and empathy

Major benefits for students who attend live theater, study finds: theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance and empathy | Smart Media | Scoop.it

Field trips to live theater enhance literary knowledge, tolerance and empathy among students, according to a study published this week by researchers in the University of Arkansas Department of Education Reform.

 

The research published in Education Next examines the impact on students of attending high-quality theater productions of either Hamlet or A Christmas Carol.

 

The researchers found that viewing the productions leads to enhanced knowledge of the plot, increased vocabulary, greater tolerance and improved ability to read the emotions of others.

 

=========================

Two years ago, researchers found significant benefits in the form of knowledge, future cultural consumption, tolerance, historical empathy and critical thinking for students assigned by lottery to visit Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas.

Karen B Wehner's insight:

Really interesting to see evidence that tolerance and empathy rise even in students who watch (vs perform) theater.

Teaching Empathy Through Digital Game Play

Teaching Empathy Through Digital Game Play | Smart Media | Scoop.it
Video games can offer a playful approach to learning a new concept, providing a jumping off point for diving deeply into a topic. Games can’t do all the teaching, but they are an engaging way to get kids thinking -- even about ethics.

Bravo to the award-winning Quandary (www.quandarygame.org) for recognition as a unique vehicle for game-based learning of tricky but essential skills such as empathy and appreciation for alternative points of view.

 

We created The Time Tribe (www.thetimetribe.com) with the same emotional and cultural literacy skills in mind!

This is a great example of game-based education in the essential but tricky-to-teach skill of empathy and openness to aternative points of view. We aim to do the same with The Time Tribe, our time travel adventure game based on real history and archaeology, currently in beta: www.thetimetribe.com
