Empathy and tolerance

Posted by Miss W. on October 5, 2010

In Skills 4 Life this fortnight we are looking at empathy and being tolerant.

Part of this topic involves being able to resolve conflicts by using :

  • mediation
  • compromise
  • negotation
  • assertiveness

Students in 6/7D have had a chance to create a cartoon using ToonDoo that shows one of the above methods for resolving the conflict.

Check out Miss W’s cartoon below and as students publish them, I will add a link to them here.

    Hey, Sophie!

    My name is Allie, and I am an EDM310 student at the University of South Alabama!

    Knowing how to resolve conflict is very important – whether you’re dealing with parents, siblings, friends, teachers, or co-workers! Two people are never going to completely agree, so you definitely need to know how to work together. Meditation, compromise, negotiation, and assertiveness are all great ways to do this!


    P.S. I had never heard of ToonDoo until reading this, and I can’t wait to use it!

    Hi Miss W and class!

    The toon do creations are terrific. My class has also been working on solving conflict. We are practicing our skills in this area by playing group games and board games. See my post to see what we have been doing.

    Hello Kids in the Mid! I am visiting your blog as part of the blogging challenge. I am a teacher of 9-12 year olds in Tasmania.I have enjoyed your cartoons. I did not know about TooDoo but I will certainly be sharing it with my class. I know they will love it. We did a unit about empathy earlier in the year and some of our class mad powerpoint presentations about an Australian who showed empathy and used that empathy in ways to effect positive change. We learnt about some amazing Australians such as Fred Hollows, Mary Mackillop and Eddie Mabo. We shared our powerpoints on our class blog called the On the Grapevine. It would be great if you could visit our blog sometimes as I am sure that we could learn a lot from you :-)
    Keep up the great work!
    Mrs V

    Hello, I am a student from University of South Alabama and I am commenting for my EDM 310 class. Wow! These ToonDoos about empathy and tolerance are a wonderful and creative way to get children to consider how to resolve conflicts. I have never heard of ToonDoos, but I would like to make one of my own very soon! As a future teacher, I would like to use this tool in the classroom. The students did a wonderful job with their cartoons. Each one is unique and personal. I love them all!
