Abstract: As a secondary English teacher, I noted growing concern with regard to student disengagement, stress and anxiety. As a response to this contemplative pedagogy and life writing (Chambers, Hasbe-Ludt, Leggo & Sinner, 2012) was utilized initially to engage students in personal stories and then bridge the gap between their life, text, and the larger learning outcomes of the ELA program of studies. The key focus was engagement through contemplative reflection on the lived experience, allowing for the study of the humanities to emerge, “as they were intended to develop the intellect and through this to transform a life” (Stock, 2006).
