January 26, 2021 @ 3:30 pm 4:30 pm

Project-based learning is becoming an increasingly popular way to engage students in deeper learning; however, many students struggle to complete projects to their teacher’s expectations. Between time management and organizing notes to reading comprehension and successful editing, the executive function demands of projects can easily overwhelm both teachers and their students. In this presentation, we will explore how to embed executive function strategies in project-based learning, helping students complete projects successfully while building executive function strategies they can use in other classes.
