Iasevoli, B. (2017, September 30). Here’s What a ‘Kindness Curriculum’ Looks Like.

Scientists want to make kindness as integral to the curriculum as reading or math.

The curriculum is available online for free and has so far been downloaded 7,300 times. Twice a week for 20 minutes during pilot testing of the curriculum, pre-kindergartners did activities aimed at helping them to pay attention, regulate their emotions, and practice kindness.
