Students who struggle with procrastination or struggle to maintain their focus are often unable to utilize the executive function strategies they need to stay engaged. They may lack the self-understanding to identify why they are procrastinating or what strategies they can use to overcome distraction and get back on track.
In this training, attendees will explore the impact of motivation and engagement on students’ use of executive function strategies, as well as how to use EF strategies as a way to promote motivation and engagement with learning. We will develop a more nuanced appreciation for understanding student’s procrastination and fluctuating motivation. Through hands-on and interactive activities, we will learn to teach executive function strategies in a way that addresses engagement and motivation, empowering students to be more independent and successful.
