Teach the Teachers | You Are What You Watch: Fostering Empathy in Students through Documentary

October 21, 2020, 3:00 pm5:00 pm

In this session, the facilitator and participants will delve deeper into the ways in which documentary can be used as a tool to foster student empathy. The facilitator and supporting educators will share their experiences in using documentary – with its predominant focus on individuals and specific historical moments rather than themes or broad strokes – to offer students a different perspective than they might find in textbooks, novels, internet resources, or other resources.

Participating teachers will then have a chance to practice creating empathy-provoking curriculum around documentary.

RSVP to this and all upcoming Teach the Teachers professional development sessions here.

A Zoom link will be shared the morning of the event.
