The Kindness Curriculum

Year: 2019

Another gem from our colleagues at Child Trends

Research from the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin indicates that children could benefit from teaching curricula that focus on kindness in the classroom. Children in classrooms that used the mindfulness-based kindness curriculum had better grades and attention spans, and showed a higher level of social competence, compared to children in classrooms that did not use the curriculum. The curriculum focuses in part on helping children learn to identify and respond to emotions in appropriate ways.
