Educators are responsible for equipping young people with life skills. Self-awareness, intellectual curiosity, and empathy are capacities teachers should seek to imbue in their students, along with subject matter. There are several easy ways to do this that do not interfere with curriculum--Common Core or otherwise. These methods can be easily incorporated into the classroom; they demand more of a shift in thinking than of curriculum materials or additional resources. As a result they can be implemented in every school district, from the most affluent to the most impoverished.
