Students and teachers will choose a group of people that makes them uncomfortable and commit to spending a day in that population.  When something makes us feel uncomfortable, the important question to ask yourself is why? Many times this fear comes from the unknown. When you immerse yourself in what you fear and get to know people as individuals we begin to break down walls, and build empathy and understanding.

Hi Kelli! this is very would this be structured in a classroom and school environment? How would you prepare and encourage students to go into an uncomfortable situation? What might the reflection process look like to encourage building empathy? Would love to hear your thoughts on this!
