Do you have students who are so disorganized that they may not have the materials they need or don't even turn in the homework they have completed? Or do you see students who struggle to initiate complex academic assignments, procrastinate and then run out of time to do their ‘best work’? Does it seem that they have an inability to breakdown the demands of an assignment and have a sense of how to start?
Whether your student needs to complete tasks, classwork, or homework, in this practical strategies seminar you will learn concrete tools to help students manage their attention, time, and materials to follow directions, plan, break down, and initiate the steps towards completing and closing out assignments. Help students keep pace to make timely transitions and follow routines. Tools will be given to help with the initiation of more open ended and complex assignments. Learn practical strategies to support students in developing independent executive function skills to self-regulate and manage impulses.
Participants will be able to:
Teach self-regulation and impulse control
Learn how to increase a student’s spatial temporal window or how far into the future they can see and sustain prospective planning
Improve organization of materials, papers, and personal belongings
Show students the process of how to plan work -even if it lasts more than an hour, or must be completed over days
Teach students how to break down complex tasks and assignments and then plan for, organize, and initiate tasks
Discover fresh approaches to help students increase motivation and decrease procrastination.
