This past term I launched into .b with my students. Spread out across half of the school year and interspersed between council sessions and homeroom ‘business’, .b has given us a chance to dig deeper into our daily practice. Expanding on what we do and why. The aim here is strengthening our students ability to cope with MYP and life beyond. According to the Mindfulness in Schools site, ‘.b [dot-be], is the name for the range of courses created by the Mindfulness in Schools Project, a non-profit organisation whose aim is to encourage, support and research the teaching of secular mindfulness in schools.’
My hope is the hook – with students connecting to practice in their passions – sport, music, and coping with the dramas in life.
