This Empathy unit is a crucial element for strengthening the core curriculum and ensuring our students have empathy towards others which helps reduce bullying, racism, prejudice and can improve relationships.
• Empathy PowerPoint – fully structured so no prior experience is required to deliver it. The text is also editable for you to modify as needed.
• Empathy 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.
• Discussion point cards to develop speaking and listening skills.
Your students will learn:
• how to define empathy
• how to analyse their own and others’ empathy
• where they might need to demonstrate empathy
• signs of high empathy
• signs of low empathy
• what can affect empathy
• self-awareness of their own empathy
• actionable steps to build empathy
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 empathy and effective skills on understanding others’ feelings. 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 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 empathy: 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’ empathy and encourage them to be all that you know they can be!
Great for Character Education, Social Skills, Life skills and PSHE (Physical, Social, Health, Education) lessons.
