Teaching Empathy through Ecphrastic Poetry: Entering a Curriculum of Peace.
Gorrell, Nancy
English Journal, v89 n5 p32-41 May 2000
Argues that any curriculum of peace must have at its core the teaching (not preaching) of empathy. Recommends ecphrastic poetry (poetic response to works of art) as a teaching tool for empathy, and discusses how the author uses one particular poem written in response to a World War II photograph to stimulate student writing response and discussion.
