Hi David, this idea of the trickle down effect is similar to the post of the The Empathy Effect -- they are looking at a program called Rachel's Challenge, (http://rachelschallenge.org), based on the idea that one act of compassion will lead to many more, I wonder if that might give you some ideas on implementation?

We are also looking at Rachel's Challenge as a possible resource for us to use. Two other curriculum we are looking at are Athena's Path and Hero's Pursuit (http://michelleicard.com/curriculum/)

David Symonds  this is the perfect analogy for showing students how their words and actions have a trickle down effect on others and how others then respond. I'd love to how you implement this!

Hi David--I think this is such an interesting idea in which to base a project...I wonder what that would look like? How would you structure this to tie with empathy? Would love to hear more : )

Hey David! This is a cool idea. Such an interesting lens to look at Empathy. I wonder how we could make this idea have lasting impact on the students lives. How might we make this activity authentic? We don't want students to think of this as a one off lesson, right? Excited to see how this idea develops!
