2023 Pennsylvania Department of Education (In-Person) Conference
57. 5 Steps for Embedding Executive Skills Into Daily Classroom Routines and Instruction
Friday March 03, 2023 9:45 AM - 10:45 AM - Hershey Lodge and Convention Center
Executive skills are task-oriented skills that underlie students’ ability to learn. Although seldom taught explicitly, many educators now see that students who are strong in these skills are more successful than those who aren't. This workshop will provide step-by-step instructions for incorporating executive skills into everyday classroom lessons and activities. Participants will learn how to (a) connect classroom behavior to specific executive skills; (b) introduce executive skill concepts and terminology to students; (c) create classroom routines to help students with weak executive skills and to foster executive skill development in all students; and (d) embed executive skills into lessons for whatever subject matter they are teaching.
General education and special education administrators and teachers, paraprofessionals, school psychologists, professional development staff, and families of students with disabilities are encouraged to attend.
Reasonable efforts will be made to accommodate individuals who have special needs as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act and who need assistance at this event. Contact: Debra Jordan at (610) 878-7224 or firstname.lastname@example.org
