To achieve an equitable world tomorrow, young children must grow in empathetic and equitable classrooms today. Empathy requires the ability to take other people’s perspectives. Because children under five are developmentally geared to understand the world from an egocentric perspective, early childhood educators must intentionally help children see other perspectives. This webinar, presented by early childhood empathy and equity experts Jacky Howell, Sabina Zeffler, and Makai Kellogg will provide insights about their experiences working directly with children (virtually and in person) to build these critical skills.
Join this free webinar to learn how you can create classroom communities that buzz with kindness and offer equal opportunities to all. In this paradigm-shifting webinar, you will learn how to provide experiences that help children consider other people’s perspectives and feelings while learning all they need to be lifelong learners. Be part of the change you would like to see in the world by learning from three exceptional early educators who specialize in empathy and equity.
Join us to learn:
- Understand the function of perspective taking in developing empathy
- Hear stories and examples from the classroom (virtual and in person) of intentional practices that foster empathy and perspective taking
- Reflect on your own practices and think of how you already facilitate perspective taking and model empathy as well as anything new you can add to your work with children
All sessions are 1.5 hours long, and include a brief announcement from our sponsor.
2:oo PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Time.
