    The focus of meditation inherently contradicts the educational structure I have lived in for twelve years.

      Hi Tyler,
      Thank you for your thoughtful blog responses. So that you remain anonymous on the public blog, will you please use the following steps to make sure you are creating a ‘post’ rather than a ‘comment.’

      1. ​Students need to go to the site and login using the link in the upper right hand corner of the screen.http://sites.middlebury.edu/movementmatters/
      2. When students get to the site they can select to add a “post” by using the menu bar at the very top of the screen.
      3. When students create their post they need to select the appropriate “category” based on their course (“Noticings: Ed in the U.S.” This is found on the right hand side of the screen toward the bottom of the page.

      Thank you!
