Perfect Resource for Integrating Empathy and Emotional Intelligence into the Classroom (and Home)
Emotional intelligence and empathy are critically important skills in a society where kindness and civil discourse are in increasingly short supply. Many who recognize this need struggle to integrate associated lessons into an already packed curriculum. This book, Teaching Empathy, is just what teachers (and parents) need to help children develop empathy as a skill as important as math or spelling. 

Written to appeal to a broad audience of educators and practitioners, Dr. Henshon draws on her extensive experience and presents solid research in each digestible chapter. She makes sound suggestions for exercises both planned and [prepared for the] unexpected, and includes discussion questions for both adults and children. 

Adopt this book to teach educators, select it for a book club, or read it on your own.
