Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. understand the 11 executive skills that influence school performance,
  2. understand how contextual variables, including the influence of culture and social class, may affect executive skill development,
  3. make the connection between observable behavior and underlying executive skills, and
  4. support classroom teachers in their efforts to incorporate executive skills into daily lessons and classroom activities.


This workshop will provide step-by-step instructions for incorporating executive skills into everyday classroom lessons and activities. After a brief introduction to executive skills, participants will learn how to (a) connect classroom behavior to specific executive skills, (b) introduce executive skill concepts and terminology to students, (c) create classroom routines to help students with weak executive skills and to foster executive skill development in all students, (d) embed executive skills into lessons for whatever subject matter they are teaching, and (e) engage students in a problem-solving process to address both class-wide and individual issues associated with executive skill challenges.
