Between Mars and Venus - 7 Traits of True Leaders | Inc magazine | Generosity | Scoop.it

The article references a study of 64,000 people in 13 countries. Two-thirds said the world would be a better place if men thought more like women.

Sandy Hook Teacher Starts Nonprofit to Teach Empathy

Sandy Hook Teacher Starts Nonprofit to Teach Empathy | Generosity | Scoop.it

Having survived the horrific attack at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Conn., and been on the receiving end of enormous generosity afterward, 1st grade teacher Kaitlin Roig began thinking about ways to give back. In an essay in Goodmagazine, she explains feeling compelled to teach her students about—and give them a chance to express—kindness and empathy.

 

One example of her approach:

I brought a large box a friend had mailed to my class and placed it in front of the room. "This box is filled with things for us to use during recess." I told my students. As I pulled out puzzles, games, coloring books, and markers their eyes grew wide.

By Liana Heitin

 

 

"Students will learn kindness by being kind, they will learn to care by caring, and they will learn empathy by being empathetic. By creating an environment where students learn to care for others not by talking but by doing, we cultivate a message that our lives are not separate, but in fact completely connected. When we teach kindness, compassion, love and empathy, there is no room for hate." Kaitlin M. Roig
