PoM helps educators teach mindfulness, neuroscience, gratitude, empathy, and conflict resolution – not just to help kids self-regulate (though they do self-regulate), but as tools of liberation. Students notice and manage their feelings and work out conflicts before they escalate; teachers create kinder, more inclusive schools; together they are positioned to create a more peaceful and equitable world. PoM is developing its classroom-based curriculum for delivery online as well as in print, continuing to build a video library of resources that can be used by educators in the classroom and by students and families at home, creating model classes for teachers to watch as they prepare lessons, and offering virtual professional development sessions for educators in Fall 2020 (and beyond, if necessary). As health conditions permit, this work returns to the classroom, where it is much needed in a contentious world.
