Empathy in the Classroom

I read an amazing article earlier this winter about creating a lesson play about fostering empathy in high school students around the subject of bullying. I think as an ELA teacher empathy is something I would like to try and instill in my students if at all possible. I’m using this post as a place to keep resources about emptahy in the classroom.
