Overview

Social skills are often assumed by many adults as something that children innately possess. However, empathy and compassion for fellow students is something that takes careful development and management in the classroom. Join Leigh Anne Kraemer-Naser as she defines and distinguishes between the critical components of cooperation and care: emotional literacy, empathy, and perspective taking. She will provide a brief overview of the milestones in the development of empathy and a sense of self will. In addition, Leigh Anne will discuss some basic, but effective practices that can successfully develop empathy among the students in your classroom. She will also share some common phrases to avoid, since they can inhibit or confuse children's empathetic responses.

Awesome webinar. So important to remember if our students are not emotionally ready they are not academically ready to learn.

Thank you for your perspective. I've been thinking lately not only about how to help the children who are picked on, but the "pickers" too. I teach pre-k and I really want to help all my kids understand how much their actions affect others. It's too easy just to have consequences without correction.
