SMARTS Workshop

Presented by: Michael Greschler,  M.Ed., Director of SMARTS,  Shelly Levy, M.Ed., M.S. and more!

Looking to do a deep dive and learn how to use SMARTS strategies to support your students? In our spring training, titled “Strategy Instruction Across Grades and Content Areas,” you’ll have a chance to learn from SMARTS staff and your colleagues from around the world. In both large group sessions and grade-level breakouts, we will explore the importance of executive function strategy instruction when it comes to time management, organizing materials, planning papers and projects, and helping students learn from their mistakes. 

In session one, we will tackle organization and time management, exploring why students so often struggle with organization and effective time management and how we can shift that mindset. In breakout rooms, we will share practical, hands-on strategies for students in elementary, middle, and high school to help them organize their belongings, prioritize their time, and create and stick to plans independently.

In session two, we will look at papers and projects, academic tasks which carry a high executive function demand. As a group, we will look at why many students are overwhelmed by these long term assignments and how we can help students learn from their mistakes to self-check and stay on track. In our breakout rooms, we will examine easy to use strategies that are relevant for a range of content in K-12 classrooms. 

Our SMARTS Workshop includes 4 hours of hands-on training led by SMARTS staff. Sessions will be held live on Zoom, and the recordings will be posted 24 hours after the live session has ended and remain available until May 29th.
