Anticipation guides are excellent tools that can be used before reading to activate students’ prior knowledge and build curiosity about a new topic and/or to share ideas about key concepts. Students respond to several statements that challenge or support their preconceived ideas about key concepts as well as their peers’ ideas. The Anticipation Guides can help structure meaningful conversations that reviews what students already know and engages them in critical thinking about the topic they will be exploring. The statements in the Anticipation Guides can spark some great discussions among students!! This Anticipation Guide and Self-Assessment focuses on Empathy.


You can use an Anticipation Guide:

⭐ Before/after introducing new material to tap into prior knowledge

⭐ Before/after watching a film clip to gauge a reaction

⭐ Before/after reading a short text to begin a discussion

⭐ Before/After discussing a topic



There is ONE Anticipation Guide that comes in two different variations:

✅ Variation #1:

⭐ Part 1: List of statements with “AGREE” and “DISAGREE” columns. Here, students read the statements and only check off “AGREE” or “DISAGREE.”

⭐ Part 2: At the bottom of this same Anticipation Guide, students are asked to select a statement from above and explain its significance to them. They may discuss how the statement relates to them, their personal experience with it, or their thoughts about it in greater detail.

✅ Variation #2: List of statements with “AGREE,” “DISAGREE,” and “COMMENTS” columns. Here, students read the statements and check off “AGREE” or “DISAGREE” and expand their thinking (or ideas) of each of the statements by writing them in the last column titled “COMMENTS.”



There is ONE Time Management Self-Assessment included in this resource. Students will measure their level of empathy and how well they understand the feelings and perspectives of others. They will score the statements using the following scale: 2 for “Always,” 1 for “Sometimes,” and 0 for “Never.” They can use these results to strengthen that awareness and develop their empathy skills.

You can also use these assessment statements to explore students’ skills as well as their thinking of the topic!
