As this report suggests the reflective analysis of the events and experiences is the key to life learning process as it allows getting deeper insights into the experiences and improving on them. This reflective report not only included the events that took place while undertaking AMP project but it also revealed the weaknesses of my personality as well as provided with some valuable lessons for the future projects. The first section of this report presents the various stages of AMP whilst other sections provide with the lessons learnt and the personal feelings at every stage of the project. Besides reflecting on my personal experiences this report also gives the reflection on group dynamics as group work was one of the initial stages of the project. It has been suggested that group work is perceived as more productive approach to work allowing to share the ideas among other members of the group.
“I found this article in a magazine for educators called Teaching Tolerance, a project of the Southern Poverty Law Center. It addresses some important concerns and steps to take when teaching mindfulness to classroom students. Among these is the importance of helping teachers become aware of their own intentions, feelings, and biases about their students as well as the importance of trying to figure out what underlies difficult student behavior: Why might this be happening? Where is this behavior coming from? I found it relevant to our program, because our curricula for parents and for teachers uses mindfulness as a tool, is concerned about self awareness around biases, and is grounded in the importance of reflecting on intentions and meaning of underlying behavior.”
