An Educator’s Guide: Practical Executive Function Skills to Help Your Students Focus and Stay Organized in the Classroom
It's hard for many kids to meet deadlines, keep track of assignments, and plan ahead. This is because Executive Function skills, like time management or prioritization, take time to learn. But once a child develops systems that work for them, these strategies can help them find success in and out of the classroom.
These important life skills often aren't part of the curriculum, but help is here!
Educational Connections Founder and President Ann Dolin, M.Ed., and Executive Function Coach Rachael Moss, MA, MS Ed., will share strategies on March 6 at 4 PM ET to help the kids you work with build those critical executive functioning skills.
During this FREE virtual professional development workshop for educators, Ann and Rachael will share insights on:
✓ Proactive strategies for helping your students manage their responsibilities
✓ Tools for helping your kids stay focused and organized in class and on top of their assignments
✓ Ways to open the lines of communication in your classroom to improve student productivity
✓ How to improve communication with parents so they can better support their child at home
