Guidance Lesson - A. Description2. Guidance Lesson
As part of my research project I helped to plan and implement a series of guidance lessons designed to teach students about mindfulness. These lessons took place during 7th period and reached all of the 7th grade students in my building. The goal of these lessons was to present 7th graders with mindfulness skills that they could use in life, but also when taking tests and dealing with other school related stressors. In these lessons we stressed the ideas that mindfulness has a lot of benefits regarding everything from mental health to performance and even within relationship and control of your emotions. Besides using this material for our research project, there was definitely a need for these skills to be taught based on the number of students that I had been seeing due to their anxiety. This was a way to provide some coping skills for all students to have access to.
