InterActive Lesson Book:Chapter 21-Survey the Scene: Infer How Others Feel-Download and Print
“Survey the Scene: Infer How Others Feel” is chapter 21 of the InterActive Lesson Book for Herb Hein’s Growing G.R.E.E.N. InterActions Social Literacy Program. This is a great chapter for guiding participants to know what kind of basic comments they can make to act in an empathetic way. For distance learning it is possible to screen share the numerous exercises in this chapter and annotate them with the collaborative responses generated with the guide and the participant(s). With the short sentence stimuli provided, the participant initially learns to “survey the scene” to learn whether the person is feeling positive from good news or feeling negative from bad or sad news. The participant is then guided to make a supportive comment by choosing empathetic words to use in response. Once the simple scripts have been written out, the participant can practice listening to one or more and verbally expressing the relevant, empathetic comment with a caring voice.
