From On Point Radio (with Tom Ashbrook):
American children need reading, writing and arithmetic. They need science, technology, engineering, art, literature. They also, says a new movement, need a psychological tool kit filled with attention, perseverance, emotional control, “mindfulness.” Some now call it character.
The habits of mind that make all else possible. Taught in school. Classrooms are now taking time out for meditative moments. Getting centered. Getting mindful. The call it self-regulation. Emotional learning. Right alongside the “three-R’s”.
This hour, On Point: teaching mindfulness at school.
