The Classroom Setting
- Roots of Empathy is delivered on-site in your classroom during regular school hours
- We use a specialized curriculum which is developmentally appropriate for primary/elementary children
While the Roots of Empathy Instructor is responsible for preparing and delivering the lesson during the Roots of Empathy visit, the classroom teacher is an active participant in the program. Teachers who see the need for the program, who have worked in consultation with the principal, the Instructor and other school staff, and who are proactive, will see the program unfold most effectively.
