It bridges the rapidly evolving field of mindfulness studies with educators’ life-long quests for substantial and sustainable improvements in the educations we provide our students. “This updated and expanded second edition of The Mindful Teacher presents a truly inspiring vision of educational change. It is essential reading for all who agree that it is time to spark a quiet revolution of learning in which teachers and their students can truly flourish.” —Michael Schratz, president of the International Congress of School Effectiveness and Improvement “When reforms in some education systems result in alienated teaching rather than improved learning, it takes a book like The Mindful Teacher to remind all that education has deeper meaning and substance than merely achieving performance indicators. This book has a very important message for all educators!” —Pak Tee Ng, National Institute of Education, Singapore, author of Educational Change in Singapore

A flexible set of lessons tailored to the developmental needs of adolescents, based on research in behavioral science. Arguably, no student population stands to gain more from mindfulness practice— with its power to enhance emotion regulation, attention stability, and self- awareness— than students between the ages of thirteen and twenty. In this comprehensive curriculum developed at Mindful Schools, Oren Jay Sofer and Matthew Brensilver provide twentyfive brief (twenty- to- thirty- minute) lessons that supply a framework for mindfulness instruction that can be expanded or condensed according to the needs of students. Each lesson includes a “science supplement” with research findings relevant to the practice, and handouts summarizing key aspects of the lesson that can be distributed to students. Users of the curriculum may also be interested in the instructional resource written from a similar perspective by these authors with JoAnna Hardy: Teaching Mindfulness to Empower Adolescents.
