Empathy is critical as educators try to create environments that ensure every child feels comfortable and welcome in the classroom. A safe place where students enter as stakeholders and are eager to contribute to the class are hallmarks of a successful learning space. This type of class culture is conducive to the success of all students — success that is not solely academic in nature.

This week, Teaching Channel highlights resources that focus on the social and emotional aspects of learning. How do you help a student “fail forward” and grow while attempting a difficult task? How have teachers created an inclusive environment that welcomes high level discourse? What strategies do educators use to ensure that their students are both physically and mentally present in their classrooms? I know these questions are important in my STEM classroom and don’t require a Herculean effort on my part. See how you can easily incorporate simple measures that deliver big results for your kids.
