Inspiring empathy through reading by Angela Chen
Static Preview

Angela has been a student at Nanjing International School for almost thirteen years. Self-diagnosed with a serious case of obsessive reading disorder, books have become a home to her as much as Nanjing. At TEDxYouth@NIS, Angela will be sharing stories and results from her recent project exploring the use of fiction to teach empathy to local Chinese school children and her realization that empathy is not taught, but inspired. In her talk, she will examine how children’s books can be used to gently deliver the spark of empathy that will one day grow into a wildfire.

Grow Your Empathy Through Better Visual Perception with Alan Alda
Static Preview

The simple act of noticing someone's eye color can build your empathy, explains Alan Alda, who got so curious about empathy one day that he began to experiment on himself. Any time he'd interact with someone, he would try to figure out what they were feeling, and name their emotional state (using strictly his inside voice). This exercise inspired psychologist Dr. Matthew Lerner to conduct a scientific study on empathy, and how it can be bolstered by practicing visual perception. Alda lists the benefits of paying more attention to the people you encounter each day as numerous: annoying people become easier to tolerate, discussions become more productive, you feel more relaxed, which is contagious to those around you—you can even become a better conversationalist and writer. He is full of praise for the effect of empathy on communication, but not without caveat: he warns that empathy must be managed and edited in order to be a successful tool, otherwise it can work against you. Alda has summarized his adventures in the art and science of communication in his book If I Understood You, Would I Have This Look on My Face?  Published by Big Think.

Want to Be More Empathetic? Start Reading Books by Minorities with Gene Luen Yang
Static Preview

Fiction is so much more than a vehicle for entertainment. Graphic novelist Gene Luen Yang believes "own-voice" stories, told by people from within those communities, have immense power to show us the world through the eyes and mind of a different cultural group. It can also make our real-world interactions with people who are different to us so much richer, through empathy. "In my personal experience it seems like reading those stories ultimately emphasizes the common humanity that we all have," he says. "I think that’s how your empathy grows." What is cultural appropriation, and do we even know what's being appropriated? Can just anyone tell a minority story? Listen to Yang dissect this topic through the lens of his own experience — and find out why he's been boycotting the blockbuster film The Last Airbender since 2010 (still going strong).
