Example text

Journal Writing Encourage students to reflect on what they’ve learned about how their brains think and learn and to record questions they may wish to explore at another time. They may also enjoy responding to these prompts: • • Draw a picture of yourself when your amygdala was activated. Below your picture, describe the situation in words. Explain whether your amygdala reacted to real danger or alerted you to a situation that wasn’t an actual threat. Draw a picture of yourself when you are feeling calm and thinking clearly.

Let them share their lists in pairs and then record a class list on chart paper. Challenge them to try the exercise again and see if there were any sounds they didn’t hear the first time. Invite them to add the new sounds to their lists. Discuss: When we are busy in our classroom, we don’t hear many of the sounds we’ve listed because our attention is not focused on those sounds. This exercise is one way to help our mind settle down and focus our attention. What are worrisome or stressful times at which you might benefit from an exercise like this one, focusing your attention on listening to all the sounds around you?

Connect it to what students have learned about the brain. • Wasn’t it surprising how many sounds we heard when we were really focused on just listening? We kept our amygdala calm and that allowed lots of sound information through to our PFC, which passed it on to our memory saver, the hippocampus. Explain that focusing our attention on what’s happening here and now is part of being mindful, or paying close attention. The second part of being mindful is being nonjudgmental—waiting to form an opinion until you have considered a situation more carefully.
