Teaching Empathy: The Human Experience and Process Drama
- 2 Credits
How do you break through to students who have not been taught empathy or racial reconciliation at home? How can you prepare your students for adulthood by teaching them to cultivate an awareness of their biases, or the effects of bullying? Through Process Drama, your students will gain empathy for the human experience by guided activities that take little set-up and few materials. Each variation of Process Drama is a remarkable tool for social emotional learning. As you walk your students through a real-life experience, your students will learn to demonstrate empathy by creating a guided imaginary world and walking in someone else's shoes.
