How do you have a dialogue across difference?

Inspired by the Caring Schools #CommonGood campaign’s call to engage students in activities that enable them to "talk across the aisle," Middlesex School has incorporated a new class for freshmen students titled "Dialogues Across Differences."

Rob Munro, Director of Middlesex School's Global Studies initiative, shared with us that "many schools ask their students to be more empathetic, and we were among those schools; however, unless we actively teach how to be empathetic as a class, during the school day, we knew it would be difficult for students to truly grasp how to have difficult, but empathetic interactions."
 

Save the date for Character Day 2018 

Our friends at Character Day invite you to sign up and join the global movement on September 26, 2018.

Character Day is a free day and global initiative where school districts, individual classrooms, companies, organizations, and families—groups of all sizes—screen films on the science of character development from different perspectives, dive into free printed discussion materials catered to different ages, and join an online global Q&A conversation featuring prominent leaders discussing the importance of developing character strengths (resilience, grit, empathy, courage, kindness)—all rooted in evidence-based research.
