MindPOP Fundamentals

The mission of MindPOP (mindful-mindset-plan-organize-prioritize) is to

introduce students to mindsets and methods that will help them improve their executive function skills. Executive functions are a set of mental skills that allow us to manage ourselves and our resources in order to achieve a goal. These skills include: regulating emotions, self-monitoring (keeping track of what you are doing), paying attention, starting and completing tasks, organizing, planning, and prioritizing. 

Through reflective and interactive activities and discussions, this program will provide tools to help students organize their materials, plan & prioritize tasks, develop effective learning strategies, cope with stress, and build resilience. As students increase their self-awareness, they will be better able to make mindful choices about themselves as learners in school and life.
