Nov. 25, 2012: This project was cancelled before completion.
CCNMTL is creating an online professional development companion to MindUP, a PreK-8 social and emotional learning curriculum recently published by Scholastic, Inc. The online curriculum will be used to train teachers in the MindUP program starting in the fall of 2012. This project is funded by The Hawn Foundation and will include contributions from faculty at Teachers College and CU.
MindUP is a suite of social, emotional, and attention-related self-regulatory strategies and skills, developed to cultivate well-being and emotional balance in children and ultimately improve behavior and learning. MindUP skills, including focused attention and non-reactive monitoring of experience from moment to moment, create the potential for long-term impact on brain function and social and emotional behavior of children. The MindUP online learning platform will feature real-life video examples of the curriculum's principles being incorporated into classroom practice. These videos, combined with explanatory text, images, and activities will provide teachers with the materials and support they need to successfully implement MindUP in their classrooms.Access: Private
