Been There, Done That. How about This?

Guidance and Student Support ServicesInclusive Education
1 Hour Session
10:45 AM, Friday 14 Feb 2020 (1 hour)
Location : Crescent Heights High School - 303

Some students have difficulty paying attention, initiating and staying focused on tasks, thinking flexibly, adapting to changes, handling frustrations and thinking through their problems. Their behaviours end up getting in the way of their, and their peers’, learning. This session will explore how underdeveloped executive functioning and self regulation skills get in the way of learning, and how empathy, a growth mindset and strategies can build executive functioning capacity in the underachievers in the class. The toolkit of strategies comes from the work of the psychologists Dr. Jack A. Naglieri, Dr. Ross W. Greene, and from years of experience teaching in complex classrooms in elementary and middle schools.
