Complement efforts in the classroom to work on social-emotional learning, and understand the affective needs of young people in library settings. Given the national climate of anxiety and fear, climbing diagnoses of neurological difference, and overall sensitivity, fewer young people come to school able to self-soothe. Building on the work of Nel Noddings, Lynne Evarts, and Meghan Harper, this book focuses on the deliberation, quiet, and reflection sometimes described collectively as mindfulness. From breathing exercises to meditation, mindfulness exercises can be a coping mechanism for at-risk students, and librarians can create an environment, away from the classroom, in which students can explore their abilities to regulate and control their social and emotional responses, skills that underpin information retrieval and analysis. The role of school libraries in promoting mindfulness in the twenty-first century could parallel the quest for intellectual stimulation and self-improvement that informed the public libraries movement in the late nineteenth century. Providing practical suggestions for working in concert with classroom teachers, school counseling staff, and community partners, this guide will inform librarians' practice by increasing awareness of how to create a nurturing space for students in the school library. Highlights how mindfulness strategies have been successfully implemented in classroom and library spaces Recommends a range of easy-to-implement, no- or low-cost adjustments to space and services that can make the library experience more inclusive and positive Harnesses the increasing interest in social-emotional learning and how that undergirds student readiness to learn and confidence as a learner

The authors, one an urban public school teacher in Boston and the other a professor of education at Boston College, define and articulate the idea of "alienated teaching" and offer a means to counter it. Alienated teaching is what teachers do when they feel that they must comply with external conditions that they have not chosen and from which they inwardly dissent because they do not believe that new policies and reforms serve their students well. Funded by a grant from the Boston Collaborative Fellows, the authors examine the effects of top-down policy mandates on classroom teachers. "Mindful teaching" is a way for teachers to learn how to incorporate appropriately, reforms and mandates into their practice. Mindful teaching promotes openness to new ideas and new perspectives via discussion in a collegial group committed to teacher inquiry. It promotes quiet and thoughtful articulation about professional commitment and beliefs. The authors are strong proponents of teachers becoming "teacher leaders" in order to work through the issues of mandates, teaching to the text, etc.
