This is terrific for teachers and parents. I think we have to model and engage kids in empathy as often as possible, so it becomes part of their built in value set. Teaching them that they can make choices that effect the outcome for themselves and others is powerful, but so is using what Rick LaVoie calls a social autopsy- after a bad situation occurs, walking a kid or kids through the situation again, and asking them where they could have made a different choice, and let them predict a different outcome. That can be incredibly useful as well, and has worked wonders with our kids.
