Looking for ways to help your disorganized, easily distracted students become more efficient? How about those who have difficulty getting started, fall apart when they encounter obstacles, or avoid challenges? In this experiential training, you’ll learn how to use your daily content to help students build underdeveloped skill sets and mindsets that are vital to learning and success in school, relationships, jobs and life—all without sacrificing too much instructional time. We will address key information about the brain and the impact of stress on Executive Function as well as how to support students with transitions and routines and the development of skills related to goal setting, time management, self-monitoring, cognitive flexibility, and growth mindset self-talk.
Open to teachers and administrators at all grade levels. Lunch included.
