Executive Functions for Every Classroom, Grades 3-12

Creating Safe and Predictable Learning Environments
By: Mitch Weathers

Foreword by Patrice Bain

Every educator wants to know: What has the greatest impact on student success?

The answer: executive function skills. They are crucial for students' academic success and personal growth, yet many of our students lack the skills required to engage in learning, such as organization, planning, time management, and self-regulation.

This book shows how educators can create a more engaging and effective learning experience while addressing the epidemic of disengagement and executive dysfunction. With practical guidance to make the skills "stick" for students, this vital resource also provides

  • The three keys to teaching executive functions: Clarity, Modeling, and Routine
  • An explanation of the specific executive functioning skills essential for student success
  • Strategies for students to practice executive functions within the context of what they are learning
  • Practical guidance for establishing a consistent and safe learning environment
  • Guidance on how to expose all students to this universal MTSS/RTI Tier 1 intervention

Educators can empower students to take more risks, improve their academic performance, and prepare them for the future with the help of this innovative resource.
