I’ve been sharing different lessons I’m using in my classes to help students see the impact their actions can have on their classmates.

They’re collected at The Best Resources On Developing A Sense Of Community In The Classroom, and will be expanded in my next book on student motivation.

Today, The Washington Post published a story I’m adding to that list, How a ‘kindness contagion’ improves lives, especially now.

As you can see from the text I highlight at the top of this post, the author discusses research highlighting how our desire to be kind can be passed on to others.

Sounds like a good lesson idea to me!
