Executive Functioning: Middle School
Executive Function for School is a course designed to equip middle school students with the essential skills needed to succeed academically. The course will focus on developing executive function skills such as time management, organization, planning, prioritization, task initiation, and self-monitoring. Students will learn strategies to effectively manage their academic workload, including how to break down large projects into manageable tasks, create effective study plans, and develop effective note-taking and test-taking strategies. They will also learn how to use technology tools to help them stay organized and manage their time effectively. Throughout the course, students will have the opportunity to practice and apply these skills through various activities, including interactive group discussions, individual assignments, and group projects. The course is designed to provide students with the necessary tools to become independent, self-directed learners, and to help them succeed academically. Throughout the course, students will have opportunities to reflect on their learning and set personal goals for growth. By the end of the course, students will have increased self-awareness and social-emotional skills that they can apply in their daily lives both in and out of school.
