What does empathy look like? Encourage your pupils to put themselves in another person's shoes with several writing and discussion activities that relate to a featured short film. Over the course of the instructional activity, individuals collaborate with others, discuss the theme, write short stories, and view and respond to the film.
- Some individuals may benefit from additional scaffolding during the discussions and writing activities; perhaps allow some time for pupils to jot down ideas before discussing, and provide vocabulary to help during the writing process
- Provides many opportunities for individual to imagine themselves in another person's place
- Students will have plenty of chances to write, speak, and listen about the film and related themes
