About this item
Rechtschaffen offers this book on bringing mindfulness into the K-12 classroom. He begins with introducing five realms of literacy reached through mindfulness: physical, mental, emotional, social, and global literacy. Part I shows the teacher how to first cultivate mindfulness in themselves with practice, introspection, an inner assessment worksheet, and recommendations from teachers experienced in the technique. Part II discusses how to introduce it in the classroom, taking into account the developmental stage of the children as well as diversity of experiences and trauma awareness. Part III offers specific classroom activities to help develop mindfulness with students, framed by learning objectives and lesson layout. Activities are ordered according the realm of mindful literacy they engage. Finally part IV discusses how to integrate these activities into the class period in a useful way.
