Although it’s currently a hot topic politically, 80% of parents support their children learning social and emotional skills. Getting students to think about others and having empathy should be at the heart of every lesson and interaction. These 33 empathy prompts will help you create a classroom of caring and understanding students.
Here’s how you can use these empathy prompts in your classroom throughout the year:
- Have a slide displayed on your board when students walk into class and have students write down an answer on a sticky note.
- Share the slideshow in your online classroom along with a link to a Google doc for students to respond.
- Put up a prompt for students to read and have a class discussion about what they would do or how they feel about the situation.
- Pair students up and have them share their ideas based on the prompt. Bring students back together to share their ideas as a class.
