“Empathy: The Art and Heart of Fiction” by Martha Stickle, 6th grade English
You already know that reading makes you smarter, helps you understand the world, and gives you endless conversation starters, but did you know reading fiction actually makes you a kinder human being? In this class, we’ll explore the latest research about how book study shapes empathy, explore middle-grade, YA, and adult books that serve as windows and mirrors, and formulate reading plans to make for a more empathetic, gentler world. Some outside reading will be encouraged for our book discussions.
