Product Description

An Experienced Educator Shares her Secrets for Improving the Emotional, Intellectual and Social Climate of Your Classroom.

“Mindfulness is a powerful tool, igniting creativity, encouraging empathy, fostering joy and supporting students and teachers as they make meaning through learning and experiences. Mindfulness has powerful potential, yet isn’t a quick-passing fad; strength comes with its time-honored simplicity.”

In this clear-minded and practical book, Lisa Harlow offers a proven method for introducing the practice of mindfulness to your students. Extensive research has documented the benefits of mindfulness and meditation as tools for enhancing learning by improving student attention and engagement. Harlow’s approach puts a human face on that research, speaking directly to the most pressing issues facing you and your fellow teachers in the often-chaotic realm of contemporary education.

Includes Supporting Resources:
--“Quick-Guide” Teacher Handouts
--Sample Lesson Plans
--Sample Journal Prompts
--Access to Online Articles
--Lisa’s Blog (www.mymindfulnessjourney.weebly.com)

From the Foreword:

“Lisa’s writing gently levers off the blinkers of belief that the next new technique to solve our educational dysfunction is just around the corner. She takes you through a well-researched and considered journey, joining her experiences of mindfulness with such important aspects of education as The Growth Mindset and The Four C’s of Partnership for the 21st Century: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity and Critical Thinking.

“Reading through Lisa’s observations and research raises an important question: Could a signicant part of the solution to our needs in education be right under our noses?

“If you can, read Lisa’s work as you practice mindfulness. This will color, give taste and true meaning to what I would consider the most relevant and important dimension of 21st Century Education.” --Award-Winning Author, Teacher and Educational Consultant Lawrence Carroll
