Boosting Executive Skills in the Classroom.
This practical guide offers a wealth of proven strategies to help students with Executive Function (EF) challenges―those who have trouble negotiating the world of deadlines, paperwork, and main ideas. The book offers useful tools and systems to help EF-challenged students learn in an efficient manner, demonstrate what they know, and manage the daily demands of school. Recognizing that teachers must manage the ebb and flow of their broader classroom needs, the tips offered here are equally useful for children with EF problems as well as other students in the general education classroom.
Rooted in solid research and classroom-tested experience, the book is organized to help teachers negotiate the fluid challenges they face every day; educators will find strategies that improve classroom “flow” and reduce the stress of struggling to teach students with EF weaknesses.
- Includes a wealth of actionable strategies and tools
- Provides numerous reproducible, time-saving forms and handouts
- Shows how to create an “EF Smart” classroom
- Offers a template for planning and monitoring interventions
