Use Historical Empathy to Help Students Process the World Today

What is this about?

This short text provides important elements to increase empathy in history education: highlighting lesser-told stories which can contribute to the multi-perspectivity, using paired texts (particularly primary sources), sharing stories of young people from history that could inspire students to think about their own role in the world and using role-playing activities so that students can put themselves in the position of someone else from the past.

For whom is this important?
