Practicing Empathy

Practicing Empathy

Students watch a 12-minute film, Wright’s Law, by Zack Conkle, about a unique high school physics teacher and his perspective on life. In this lesson, students discuss the meaning of empathy and what role it plays in their lives. Through classroom discussion, students explore the themes of social and emotional learning and positive role models. Reflective writing prompts are also included for students to demonstrate their understanding of the story.
