5 Minutes of Middle School Mindfulness Meditation Blue Balloon

January 11, 2018

"Blue Balloon" is a 5-minute mindfulness meditation session with guided prompts. I wrote this meditation for the use of my middle school students who are studying Buddhism. I recorded the music personally, and am available for composition and freelance music production, as well as releasing free music weekly on Danny Hauger Podcasts.

The focus on this mindfulness training is a beginner's guide to breathing deep and smoothly, and focusing on the energy transferring through the body with each breath. This meditation also features a visualization of a blue balloon. Any group or individual can use this meditation video. This mindfulness can also be used in any grade level, not just middle school.

Meditating in the classroom is a wonderful habit that builds classroom community. You can gain access to the script to guide your own group through this meditation on my Teachers Pay Teachers (HaugerHistory) store: http://bit.ly/2DmuJAz

December 18, 2017

Doris Burke has long been someone I admired not just for her broadcasting gifts and abilities, but her tenacity and drive for success. I find myself similar in many ways, the serious way of approaching work and career and driving to be the best that we can, while still valuing a sense of gratitude and authenticity. I was so appreciative that Doris carved out a few minutes to talk to my students and I am thrilled to bring you this interview. Doris is best known for her work as an NBA analyst for ESPN and has had a storied career in sports broadcasting.

I hope you enjoy this podcast and subscribe for more content here on Danny Hauger Podcasts. We talk about the beginning of her career in broadcasting, her favorite NBA athlete to work with, advancing through broadcasting opportunities in New York, her role in the creation of voice overs for the NBA 2k18 video game, and her advice for young people and those seeking to be successful in broadcasting an in taking opportunities as they come in life.

Teaching Tips Using an Impromptu Speech Jar

June 13, 2017

Hey teachers everywhere! Mr. Hauger here with a great idea for classroom interactions with your students. Print and cut a list of your favorite journal or speech prompts and put them into a glass jar, or any container you have in the room. Choose a student at random, or take volunteers and have them draw a topic and speak for one minute. If the class appreciates the speech, they snap, and if the majority of students snap, the speaker has been successful. You can modify this public speech activity in many ways, but its a winner in my classroom, and I thought you might appreciate the idea!

Move from left (losing) to right (winning) by following the 5 keys! (Copyright Danny Hauger 2017)

  1. Listening critically (not just waiting to speak) will give you fuel to respond effectively.
  2. Staying composed displays your logical strength better than the volume of your voice.
  3. Respectful people are viewed favorably by judges and the audience. Stay cool!
  4. When you’re focused, you won’t be distracted by shiny distractions. Stay on topic.
  5. Point out and order the opposition’s arguments, then take them down point by point.
