Develop a responsive classroom by incorporating SEL social and emotional learning into your lessons.
This Character Education Compassion unit is a crucial element for strengthening the core curriculum and ensuring our students are taught how to be compassionate towards others and motivated to actually take action in order to help those in need.
• 16 slides of Compassion PowerPoint – fully structured so no prior experience is required to deliver it. The text is also editable for you to modify as needed!
• 9 pages of Compassion Printables – graphic organizers go perfectly with the PowerPoint if you want your students to record their thoughts as you discuss. There is also a fun bonus homework included.
They are in a PowerPoint format so they can easily be converted to Google Slides for paperless activities if preferred.
• 24 unique discussion cards to develop speaking and listening skills.
Your students will learn:
• how to define compassion
• how to analyse their own and others’ compassion
• where they might need to demonstrate compassion
• signs of compassion
• signs of lack of compassion
• what can affect compassion
• self-awareness of their own compassion
• actionable steps to develop compassion
In order to ensure these important skills can be integrated into our busy timetables, this resource has been designed to make it as easy to deliver as possible! It includes a structured PowerPoint that guides the class through discussions about compassion and effective skills on how to be compassionate towards others. No prior knowledge or experience from you is required! On top of this, the PowerPoint text is editable so you can modify the content to suit your students’ needs, should you wish.
Also included are bonus graphic organizers which are supplementary to the PowerPoint: they’re not a requirement, but they work as a helpful tool for students to record their thoughts in an aesthetically pleasing way that can then be used for bulletin board displays etc. You will also find a set of discussion task cards to spark conversation and thoughts on compassion: these can be printed off for each group of students, or they can be used in whole class discussion – it is up to you.
So help build your students’ compassion and encourage them to do good to help others and be all that you know they can be!
Great for Character Education, Social Skills, Tutor Time Activities, Life skills and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health, Education) lessons.
