Abstract

Through literature it is possible to access the lived experiences of others, to essentially read someone else’s mind, which is a straightforward way to explore empathy, yet curriculum for literature classes misses this opportunity entirely. It is this researcher’s hypothesis that, by altering the discussion around literature, it would be possible for an educator to use the same texts to foster both technical and intrapersonal skills by altering core standards, without requiring major changes in existing curriculum. Through an extensive exploration of existing research and by conducting independent field research, this project examines the modes that can be used to teach empathy in the high school literature classroom.
