Great Find on Empathy in the Classroom

I wish that I had more time to read blog posts about teaching. I stumbled across this piece by Michael Wesch today, who is an anthropologist, but had some quality wisdom for every classroom. He wrote about how teaching “techniques” are hollow without what he calls empathy. I’d name it “connection,” but I loved how he framed the problems that occur when people use great techniques without bringing their heart to the classroom.
