      In reference to gaining empathy and points of view, I like to have my students walk in the shoes of a character that we read about and discuss their perspective.

        Engaging in discourse can reveal misconceptions or nonscientific biases. We teach students to celebrate opinions and beliefs, but to also respect and value those that differ from our own.

          Accountable talk is really important with elementary students as it teaches them to listen respectfully and agree/disagree appropriately. I recommend the Talk Primer guide created by The Inquiry Project. https://inquiryproject.terc.edu/shared/pd/TalkScience_Primer.pdf
