All learning depends upon well-developed executive function. Executive function skills are rooted in a part of the brain that grows and matures throughout our schooling years. Executive function skills are demonstrated through working memory, cognitive flexibility, planning, reasoning, problem-solving, inhibitory control, and self-awareness. If students have not developed these brain-based skills they need for learning, they will struggle to learn content. Learn how to create activities and opportunities to develop and hone these very important skills to position all students for success.
