Stories That Foster Empathy in the Classroom

The Global Oneness Project has created an Empathy Collection of 15 stories and lesson plans to foster empathy in the classroom. Through the multimedia stories, students meet individuals from different backgrounds and visit communities in different geographic locations facing challenging global issues, such as climate change, drought, gentrification, immigration, migration, poverty, and war. Each story and lesson examines these issues from a humanistic perspective. Students, in turn, are asked to reflect on their own lives through discussion and writing prompts. The universal stories are intended to lead students to self-reflection, compassion, and the ability to bear witness to multiple perspectives in an ever-changing world.
