Iraq, The Bronx and Empathy

I know I ranted a bit through yesterday’s blog about Reality TV so it may be a little ironic that today’s post is about sharing something I saw on TV.

Here’s a segment from last night’s PBS NewsHour. It’s about a teacher in the Bronx using curriculum provided by the Morningside Center for Teaching Social Responsibility. The five-week curriculum is a journey connecting the lives of children in war-torn Iraq with the lives of children here.

It’s not only an effective way to teach about the Middle East, it’s a beautiful way to teach empathy. Congratulations to Morningside for such innovative curriculum. And Ms. Fardig, you hit it out of the park.
