We Wish We Went to School Here – Dream School Teaches Empathy, Collaboration, Life Skills.


By / / It’s right here in Boston, too – specifically, Mission Hill School, a public elementary school in the city’s Roxbury neighborhood. Their empathy-based culture and curriculum focuses on learning essential life skills every responsible citizen of the world needs, as well as building students’ collaborative – versus competitive – abilities. As such, the school emphasizes the development of these “5 Habits of Mind” – Evidence: How do you know? Conjecture: What if things were different? Connections: What does it remind you of? Relevance: Is it important? Why does it matter? Viewpoint: What would someone else say? How would someone else feel? Questions we should all be asking daily in our world of advertising and branding, no? Via.
