  1. It was funny, and therefore enjoyable to read
  2. It took a concept that was complicated and controversial and made it simple to understand
  • A keen knowledge and understanding of the subject matter

  • An ability to make relationships between the subject matter and the users. You must know what interests your users about a particular subject, why they would spend their time learning about that subject, and how easily will they be able to understand the subject.

Teachers understand empathy and practice it daily.
