Executive Function in the Classroom

Research has shown that the collection of skills that makes up Executive Function (EF) is the key predictor of student success … even more so than reading and math scores. In Executive Function in the Classroom, we take an in-depth look at this critical topic and uncover how it impacts your students, from preschoolers to high school seniors.


In this module, we go deep into the neuroscience behind the three domains of EF— cognitive flexibility, working memory, and inhibitory control—and how these skills contribute to both student academics and behavior. We uncover how development is impacted by trauma, and show how to work with and support students with lagging EF skills. We don’t shy away from any tough issues and we even tackle a topic that’s rarely discussed: the connection between EF and Social Emotional Learning (SEL).


As with all of our content, we conclude this module with practical, implementable classroom strategies. Some of the strategies can be used immediately without any prep and others that can be easily implemented into the planning process for teachers.


This module, like all of our modules, can be used by elementary, middle, or high school teachers. It can also be used completely on its own, or alongside our other modules for a more long-term professional development plan. Save 20% by purchasing our four-module bundle.


Concepts covered include: Defining Executive Function, Developmental Expectations, The Connection Between Social Emotional Learning and Executive Function, The Neuroscience of EF, Long-term Impacts of EF, Behavioral Milestones, The Risks of Adolescence, Connection to Academics, Lagging EF Skills, Recovering Lost Ground, Classroom Strategies, and more!
