Session Dates

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.
