Flashback Friday: Using Visual Art to Develop Empathy

When I first became an Emerging Leader for ASCD in 2015, I knew I wanted to write. I enjoy reading and learn a lot from ASCD's publications. Educational Leadership is one of my favorite magazines. I've also read many great professional books that were published by ASCD. 

This is the very first blog post that I wrote for ASCD's InService/Whole Child blog. It is called Using Visual Art to Develop Empathy. Empathy isn't developed in one day or with one lesson. It takes time, but we can teach it to our students. Try this strategy and let me know how it goes.
