Webinar: Fostering Empathy and Humane Behavior
In this webinar, we invite educators to discover activities that promote students’ emotional intelligence and the humane treatment of people and animals. Social and emotional learning teaches skills such as self-awareness, conflict resolution, and responsible decision-making. This leads to students who are not only more pro-social, but also more likely to succeed academically. This webinar will provide classroom teachers and nontraditional educators with activities and tools that will help young people to better understand themselves, other people, animals, and their connection to the global community and the natural world.
