Igniting Success and Reducing Stress: Promoting Self-Understanding and Executive Function in the Classroom

Presented by: Lynn Meltzer, Ph.D.

Date/time: February 8, 2024, 3:30-5:30 P.M. EST

Why do our students feel so anxious and stressed in school? How can we engage students in the  learning process by promoting self-understanding and teaching executive function strategies?

In this session, we will focus on approaches educators can use to promote metacognitive awareness, executive function, and social-emotional learning, processes that are critically important in every classroom. We will address approaches that build students’ motivation and self-confidence so that they make the effort to use strategies in their classwork, homework, and test preparation. We will also share examples from ResearchILD’s Motivation, Effort, and Strategy Use survey system, MetaCOG Surveys & Toolkit. This system  provides teachers with visual summaries of all students’ EF profiles along with recommended strategies for promoting goal-setting, flexible problem-solving, organizing, prioritizing, and self-monitoring. 

Throughout, attendees will learn practical strategies for promoting metacognitive awareness, flexible thinking, and executive function as part of the classroom curriculum. We will end with a discussion of the importance of these strategies for empowering students to find their own pathways to academic and life success.
