Supporting All Students’ Executive Functioning Skills

Executive Function Skills are necessary to help students thrive in school in areas ranging from managing time to managing emotions. In this course, you’ll learn about six cognitive clusters that foster a student’s ability to regulate their attention, their working memory, and their inhibitory control. You’ll consider relatable scenarios about each cognitive cluster and what it might look like both in and out of the classroom and explore specific strategies to support each function.

In this course, you will:

  • Understand Dr. Brown’s six cognitive clusters,
  • Explore strategies to teach, practice, and apply the cognitive skills, and
  • Share strategies you use and actionable steps to support the development of executive functioning skills in your classroom.
