Warm up: Correlative Conjunctions
After our warm up, we discussed the definitions of pity, sympathy, empathy, and compassion, from the article we read yesterday. We then watched the short video about compassion entitled "Where does compassion really come from?"
Since we've now looked at identity and compassion, our final project for this semester is to find compassion for someone of a different identity. Students will work in small groups to read a few speeches from perspectives other than their own and analyze how these speeches are effective. Through using research on other experiences, they will then take the perspective of another and write a speech. Speeches will be performed as part of the final.
Groups and roles were assigned today.
