Environment, Justice and Empathy – An Inspiring Example of 21st Century Education: Martha Ashley

The future needs young people that are interpersonally and culturally empathetic, able to communicate across lines.  How we teach these skills demands new thinking.  In this example, a five-day camping trip in New Mexico culminates a course of study intentionally designed to teach students empathy, communication, and critical thinking skills by studying the traditions, values, history, and culture of the Cochiti people. Presented by Martha Ashley, St. Mary’s Academy Middle School Principal.
