Mindfulness AT CES

MindUp Lessons

Mindfulness programs support schools in meeting National School Climate Standards. A positive, safe and supportive school environment is critical to students’ social, emotional and academic development. Mind Up engages students in community-building and conflict-resolution skills in order to reduce incidents of physical violence and bullying, create a cooperative and supportive classroom environment, and enhance overall student performance. 

Mindfulness programs support the five social and emotional learning competencies identified by the the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL): self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision making. The MindUp curriculum and activities promote the development of these competencies as well as the foundational skill of mindful awareness.
