Demonstrate techniques of effective listening.
With so much emphasis placed on improvements in math and science, skills like compassion often receive less classroom time. This unintended trade-off may be short-sighted, as compassion is an important social-emotional skill that begins to develop in early childhood and is essential for lifelong health and success.
Learning compassion increases students’ own sense of well-being and improves the learning environment for all learners. By teaching kindness, empathy and compassion in the classroom, educators set their students up for long term success in every aspect of life.
