Abstract:

Students with strong executive function skills hold the keys to school and social success--from attention and impulse control to time management and organization. Now k-12 teachers have a practical, highly readable guide to enhancing these critical skills for "all" students, with and without learning disabilities. Through the author's memorable metaphors, classroom examples, and crystal-clear explanations of brain functioning, teachers will immediately grasp what executive function is and how it affects their students' learning and behavior. An unparalleled practical resource on one of today's most critical education topics, this sourcebook equips teachers with everything they need to detect and solve their students' executive function challenges. They'll get a wide range of ready-to-use strategies based on best practices, visual aids that make new concepts instantly understandable, and photocopiable forms to help students improve in specific executive function areas. A perfect resource for effective, affordable professional development, this teacher-friendly guide lays a clear and simple path to stronger executive skills for all students--and lasting academic and social success. Contents include: (1) Executive Function in a Nutshell: The Core Concepts; (2) The Development of Executive Skills: Learning to Stop and Think; (3) The Neurology of Self-Regulation: Executive Function and the Brain; (4) Beyond Neuropsychological Testing: What Teachers Should Know About the Assessment of Executive Function; (5) Moving the Frontal Lobe to the Front of the Class: Seven Core Strategies for Helping Students with Executive Function Challenges; (6) Keeping Words and Meaning in Mind: The Impact of Executive Skill on Reading; (7) From Brain to Paper: The Executive Foundations of Writing; (8) Bringing Numbers into Focus: Executive Function and Mathematics; (9) Surviving the Paper Chase: Organization, Study Skills, and Time Management; and (10) Unfiltered Comments, Unchecked Actions: Executive Dysfunction and Social Learning Difficulties. Study guide, references and index are also included.
