  • The Mindful Teacher

    The Mindful Teacher

    In The Mindful Teacher, authors MacDonald and Shirley begin by articulating the prevalent problem of “alienated teaching”—the kind of teaching that teachers perform when they must comply with external conditions that they feel do not serve their students well. As a solution, the authors propose “mindful teaching” —the kind of teaching that is informed by contemplative practices and teacher inquiry. They identify “seven synergies of mindful teaching” —strategies that teachers can use daily to integrate more reflection and attunement into their busy classroom life.
