Classroom Lessons Information

23 days ago

For the first part of the year, classroom lessons focus primarily on the development of attention, awareness and self regulation. Students become familiar with key parts of the brain and begin to understand how their feelings arise and that they have the ability to change the way they respond. Students are introduced to the concept of Mindfulness, which for classroom purposes is defined as "a way to pay attention with kindness".  Other topics addressed include conflict resolution, diversity, and drug awareness.
