Life in the Mindful Classroom: Nurturing the Disposition of Mindfulness

Ron Ritchhart and David N. Perkins

Harvard University

 

In this article, we review the appropriateness of ‘mindfulness’ as an educational goal and explore what it means to cultivate mindfulness as a disposition, that is, as an enduring trait, rather than a temporary state. We identify three high-leverage instructional practices for enculturatingmindfulness: looking closely, exploring possibilities and perspectives, and introducing ambiguity. We conclude by exploring what it might look like to cultivate the trait of mindfulness within individual classrooms. This report includes a review of an experimental study of ‘conditional instruction,’ which explores mindfulness as a state, and then drawson a series of qualitative case studies of ‘thoughtful’ classrooms to provide an example of conditional instruction as it might serve to develop a disposition of mindfulness.

Mindfulness in Schools: Learning from the Inside Out.

 

Here’s a question for you: if you knew how to help children regulate their emotions, succeed in school, build strong and compassionate relationships, and feel happy and at peace, would you teach them?

We suspect the answer is yes. Still, you’re probably also thinking, “How am I supposed to do all that on top of everything else?” That’s where we come in.
