Student Teacher Support
Welcome From Dr. Ruby Owiny Chair of Student Teacher Support Work Group
This week will support you as you learn more about Executive Functioning Skills. Executive function (EF) skills are the attention-regulation skills that make it possible to sustain attention, keep goals and information in mind, refrain from responding immediately, resist distraction, tolerate frustration, consider the consequences of different behaviors, reflect on past experiences, and plan for the future.
You will want to first read the Q&A Document below to get some ideas about what Executive Functioning is and how it impacts the classroom. Next you will want to read Chapter 6 (page 58) in the Executive Functioning Report linked below.
