Hello everyone! I love sharing ideas about executive function and how to teach students with learning differences on this blog, and I’m pleased to announce that we’ll have the opportunity to learn together in person!
On February 2, we will be presenting a SMARTS Workshop on practical ways to integrate executive function strategies into everyday teaching. This is one of my favorite workshops because it’s very hands-on and you’ll leave with strategies to implement on Monday morning. You will also:
- Gain a better understanding of executive function, executive function strategies, and why strategies are important to successful learning
- Become aware of how executive function impacts your teaching style
- Develop effective strategy instruction using ResearchILD‘s MetaCOG Survey system
- Adapt executive function strategies across different content areas and for students of different ages and learning styles
The workshop will be held on February 2, 2018, from 8:30 am – 2:30 pm at 2 Militia Drive, Lexington, MA, 02421. Check the main event page for all the details and to register. (Note: You do not need to be a current SMARTS user to attend this workshop; however, we will be using SMARTS lessons and materials during workshop activities.)
If enough of you are interested, we could video the sessions and then present them on the web so teachers can get the information no matter where they’re located. Let us know in the comments if this would interest you.
