Building Empathy

Building Empathy

For the third year in a row Mykee Fowlin performed at the Ramsey High School student orientation with the goal of creating an inclusive and welcoming school community. According to his website, Fowlin's "mission is to create an atmosphere of worldwide inclusion, not just tolerance, towards all people." Discussion questions included:

  • Using the concepts of mirrors and windows, what character(s) provided you with a mirror reflection of feelings you've experienced? What character(s) provided you with a window to see into someone else's feelings and experiences that are difference from your own?
  • Reflecting upon the performance, what is one small thing that you can do to improve the way you treat those who are different from you?
