Creating a Culture of Calm: Mindfulness Unfolding in the Classroom
Kane, Michele
Gifted Education International, v34 n2 p162-172 May 2018
In this article, the practice of mindfulness is examined as a useful tool to address the internal and external stressors that occur daily for gifted students and their teachers. A culture of calm can be created when these simple, effective, and inexpensive evidence-based strategies are implemented within the classroom. Beyond enhancing empathy and compassion, mindfulness sharpens awareness and strengthens executive functions, fosters keen visualization, and encourages innovation and intuition. Opportunities for deep learning are optimal when a peaceful environment is generated collaboratively which encourages focused attention and a sense of well-being.
