This workshop will focus on helping students learn HOW to learn.
This presentation will review current understandings and misunderstandings about students with learning difficulties and ADHD:
- Executive functioning
Dr. Meltzer will discuss:
- The importance of promoting metacognitive awareness so that students understand their profiles of strengths and weaknesses
- Strategies that promote student mastery of executive function processes, including the ability to set goals, organize, prioritize, shift flexibly, access information from working memory, and self-monitor
- Teaching these executive function strategies so that students can succeed when they read for meaning, write, or complete open-ended projects and papers to reduce academic stress
Learning outcomes for this Conference:
- Understand the connections between executive function, metacognition, and academic success
- Understand the impact of flexible thinking and metacognition on learning
- Learn strategies that help students shift between big ideas and supporting details in reading, writing, math, and other content areas
- Learn strategies for improving student performance and reducing school-related stress
