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
- Metacognition
- Attention
- Anxiety

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
