Summary or Abstract : This dissertation examined the relationship of character education practices to sixth graders' empathetic tendencies. Participants included 32 sixth grade students and 11 fifth and sixth grade teachers at two different K-6 elementary sites closely matched by demographic make up. Site B had a long history of character education practices, while site A had no history of a purposeful focus on character education. The researcher used four measures to investigate the empathetic tendencies of sixth grade students. First, the researcher conducted interviews with all 32 student participants, inquiring about their empathetic tendencies. Second, each student participant was given the Index of Empathy for Children and Adolescents (Bryant, 1982), which measured empathetic responses to various situations. Third, the researcher interviewed the students' fifth and sixth grade teachers to inquire about empathetic behaviors. Finally, teachers were given a short survey and asked to rate their perception of each student's empathetic tendencies.The findings of this study were intended to answer the following research question: Are empathetic tendencies of sixth grade students, who have experienced a school environment that emphasized character education practices, as defined within this study, more pronounced than the empathetic tendencies of students who have not experienced such a school environment? The empathetic tendencies of sixth grade students who had experienced an environment that emphasized character education were not determined to be different from students who had not experienced such a school environment. Student interview responses indicated that site B had stronger empathy, while teacher interviews pointed to site A students as possessing stronger empathetic tendencies. On the Index of Empathy for Children and Adolescents (Bryant, 1982) results were inconclusive, but site A had a greater number of statements overall which indicated higher levels of empathy. On the teacher rating scale, site A had higher empathetic tendencies in the perspective of teachers at the school. The results of these combined measures did not provide clear evidence of any difference in empathetic tendencies between sites A and B.The researcher speculated that a number of factors may have influenced the results of the study. Most notable of these was the complexity of measuring the empathy of sixth grade students, the challenges of linking character education practices and empathetic tendencies, and limiting confounding variables which may have influenced character development and empathy in sixth grade students..
