Developing Mindful Learners Model: A 21st Century Ecological Approach.
Fluellen, Jerry
The Developing Mindful Learners Model (DMLM), developed within the framework of Howard Gardner's multiple intelligences theory, connects three factors--content, framework, and world vision--for the purpose of helping underachieving students to become more "mindful": i.e., to become one who welcomes new ideas, considers more than one perspective, and holds a process view of life. At the heart of the model is Ellen Langer's theory of mindfulness. This Developing Mindful Learners Model is used in a pilot application on a target population of 29 African American and 1 Hispanic American third and fourth graders, most of whom are performing below grade level. Data collection is aimed at examining discernible growth for each child, focusing on: Stanford Achievement tests, N.W. Regional assessments, student works represented in both "processfolios" and portfolios, student performances in an Earth Day program, and student publication of a literary magazine. (Contains a bibliography of approximately 100 items.) (EAJ)
