"Be A Leader"

Empathy, Empowerment and Inclusion are three concepts that build on one another. In order to Include, a student must first understand Empathy and then realize one’s own ability to act and be Empowered. Students will develop self-awareness, self management, social awareness, interpersonal skills and responsible decision making. Experience Empathy, Empowerment and Inclusion in short, fun and easy to follow lesson plans for grade 2.

Empathy Detectives:

Students become “Empathy Detectives” through self-awareness of another person’s feelings by how they look, what they say and what is going on around them.  By following the clues they learn to understand and care about these feelings and become empathetic people in the classroom, at home, and in their community.

Double "E" Leaders » Empathy + Empowered:

With the understanding of Empathy, students realize their ability to act and make a difference in other people’s lives.  The combination of Empathy and Empowerment make them  “Double E” Leaders. Students participate in engaging role play and games using real life situations with multiple opportunities to perform newly learned behaviors. Self-Awareness, responsible decision making and relationship skills are promoted  through these interactive activities.

Spotlight on Inclusion:

Students explore the pain of being excluded and the pleasure of including others.  With their heightened social awareness of Empathy and Empowerment, students learn the importance of Inclusion through dynamic games, theater and self expression which promote healthy rewarding relationships and constructive choices.
