The purpose of this study was to explore the relationship of student mindfulness and homework completion. This study consisted of a sample size of 42 students within a 7th grade public school Language Arts classroom. The data was collected over a period of six weeks using conversations in small focus groups (4-6 students) , student homework completion data, one-on-one conversations with participating students, and individual observations from within the classroom. The results of this study show a loose connection between a student’s mindfulness of their homework assignments and completion, and their ability to complete the assignment(s). The data does not show a correlation as it was qualitative in nature, but instead offers insights into the thinking (mindfulness) of students in regards to the completion - or not - of their homework. My recommendations for future research is that a longer period of time be allowed for the study, a higher number of participants participate in the study, and that the timing of the study to be shifted from the end to the beginning of a given school year.
