Mindfully Teaching in the Classroom: A Literature Review
Albrecht, Nicole J.; Albrecht, Patricia M.; Cohen, Marc
Australian Journal of Teacher Education, v37 n12 Article 1 Dec 2012
The practice of mindfulness is being used with increased frequency in schools around the world. In the current literature review we outline some of the core concepts and practices associated with mindfulness and discuss studies analysing the process of mindfulness teacher training. Preliminary research in this emerging field suggests that mindfulness has the potential to improve classroom management, teacher-student relationships and instructional strategies. Mindfulness instructors recommend that before teachers can feel comfortable and effectively teach mindfulness in the classroom they need to embody and practice mindfulness in their own lives. It is proposed that in order to improve our knowledge base in this area a critical synthesis and analysis of school-based mindfulness programs is required. (Contains 1 table.)
