Creating Strategic Classrooms and Learning Environments
Presented by: Lynn Meltzer, Ph.D. and Donna Kincaid, M.Ed.
HOW do we empower students to learn HOW to learn so that we can reduce stress and promote academic success in school and in life?
Online and hybrid learning have highlighted the importance of teaching students strategies for goal-setting, organizing, prioritizing, thinking flexibly, memorizing, and self-monitoring. These executive function strategies affect students’ performance in most academic areas and are the foundation for improved school performance, growth mindsets, reduced stress, as well as resilience during classroom and remote learning.
This presentation will provide an overview of executive function and metacognition and will focus on the what, why, and how of teaching executive function across the grades and content areas. We will focus on strategies for empowering students to learn HOW to learn so we can reduce students’ stress and promote their academic success in school and in life. We will also discuss the connections between students’ use of executive function strategies and their self-concept, persistence, and resilience
Attendees will learn practical strategies for embedding metacognitive awareness, flexible thinking, and executive function strategies into their daily teaching practices.
