ShannonS Posted August 23, 2012 Share Posted August 23, 2012 Scientific American Mind ran an article last month about "a comprehensive social and emotional learning program for pre-kindergarten through eighth-grade students, [which] is informed by current research in the fields of cognitive neuroscience, mindful education, social and emotional learning, positive psychology, and evidence-based teaching practices." This curriculum is already being used in some American public schools. It was developed by Goldie Hawn and her foundation. Who knew? Not me. MindUp claims to "help students become more resilient, focused and mindful learners." Lessons include deep belly breathing, attentive listening and brain physiology. I am trying not to jump to any conclusions. Has anyone heard about this? I am off to re-read the article and dive into some research.
