The Empathy Project (My Story) is an in-school program for Grades 3 & 4. It's designed to offer students the opportunity to get to know one another better and learn about the foundational role empathy plays in their lives.
The Empathy Project (My Story) consists of lessons that cover the following topics:
- Communications (Active Listening)
- Conflict Resolution
Program goals are for students to:
a) understand the role empathy plays in healthy respectful relationships;
b) become more aware of their own identity, feelings and biases; and
c) develop verbal, non-verbal and on-line communication skills and strategies to support healthy relationships.
Students are guided through a range of fun and engaging activities that introduce key concepts, and they are invited to share their opinions and ideas through small and large group discussions.
