Executive Functioning Skills Workshop for Middle and High School Students
Executive function and self-regulation skills are the mental processes that enable us to plan, focus attention, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. When kids struggle with executive skills, it impacts them in school and in everyday life.
This one-hour session will focus on tactical time management and organization skills at a high level. The session will open with a discussion on challenges and questions the students have.
Through a guided brainstorm, including coaching and design-thinking techniques, students and the facilitator will collectively develop strategies to address these issues, followed by specific skill-building exercises:
- Ideal Week: Given a full week worksheet, each student will plot in firm weekly commitments, and then find the space for fun activities, as well as homework, jobs or other weekly actions that must take place.
- Organization & Habit Building: These tips and suggestions will help students figure out how to build strong habits for studying and for organization.
- Project Planning: Students will learn how to break down larger projects (e.g. applying to college, tackling a school project, studying for finals) into manageable chunks, demonstrating how large projects that can be overwhelming, can become reasonable and manageable very quickly.
