SMARTS Overview Video: What is Executive Function?

Many people have heard about executive function, but defining the term can be a challenge. Since a primary goal of the SMARTS Online curriculum is improving executive function skills, our first SMARTS overview video provides a definition of executive function that is clear and easy to apply to the classroom.

This is the first in a series of unit overview videos that lay out the conceptual and theoretical underpinnings of the SMARTS teaching strategies and curriculum. Over the next few months, we will highlight these videos on the blog—but if you don’t want to wait, you can view all overview videos now.
