$149.00

Special education is often seen as the setting for executive function interventions; however, executive function strategies are an essential component of every classroom! From math and science to English, history, and world languages, success in any subject relies on the use of executive function strategies. In this session, we will explore executive function strategies across a range of academic tasks and how they can be embedded in the general education curriculum with minimal time and maximum impact on students’ learning. 

Embedding Executive Function in the General Education Curriculum: Strategies for Reading, Writing, Note taking, and More

Presented by: Donna Kincaid, M.Ed. and Wendy Stacey, M.S.

Long Description: As students progress through the grades, many academic tasks (e.g., reading, writing, note taking, test preparation, etc.) increasingly rely on the successful use of executive function strategies. When executive function strategy instruction is limited to special education classrooms, there is a risk that students will not learn the strategies they need to be successful. To support the learning needs of ALL students, executive function strategies must be embedded in general education classrooms, so that students understand why and how to use the strategies they need. In this training, attendees will explore the EF demands of the general education curriculum. Through hands-on activities, attendees will learn easy to teach short, engaging, and high impact strategy extensions that can be adapted to any subject.
