Through an interactive presentation by Ms. Nancy King Wang, followed by a panel discussion with fellow K-12 teachers, this virtual workshop will examine empathy and the role it can play in today’s classrooms.
The workshop will focus on empathy as one of the core concepts of social-emotional learning, to help participants develop a deeper understanding of its critical role and engage in dialogue with fellow educators on its practices and strategies in classroom teaching.
This virtual workshop (via ZOOM) is presented by Confucius Institute at China Institute in collaboration with the New York University Project Developing Chinese Language Teachers (DCLT) and the NYS Statewide Language Regional Bilingual Education Resource Network (RBE-RN) at NYU.
2 hours of CTLE credits are offered for New York State teachers.
