This class is directed towards students in middle school (6th grade through 8th or 9th grade in the US system, at least Year 5 in the British/Australian system or homeschoolers working at a 6th grade level or higher). High school students can find the same content for their level at: https://outschool.com/classes/getting-it-together-executive-function-for-high-school-students-phr9NzjJ This course is also taught in a daily, 1-week CAMP version and as a FLEX course (pre-recorded).

Students gain a strong understanding of their weakest skills and gain knowledge and (through homework assignments) experience using new skills to support their weak areas.
I have taught executive function and productivity skills to my students and science team students for at least 10 years. These are an extension of project management, for which I have been certified at the highest level (PMP) since 2003 and have taught for the international certifying body (PMI). Since 2015, I have been coaching middle schoolers who are preparing for Science Olympiad competition with very little support--so these skills are critical and they have been wonderfully successful with my team!
Students WILL have homework every week that will have to be posted to the classroom and shared with class. These are to reinforce the skills they are learning and allow them to work through scenarios using their own ideas to problem-solve.
There will be handouts that need to be printed each week AFTER class including the skills inventories that help them evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in each area.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class is directed towards students in middle school who are changing classrooms for their subjects. High school students can find the same content for their level at: https://outschool.com/classes/getting-it-together-executive-function-for-high-school-students-phr9NzjJ Parents should plan to provide some supervision to ensure homework is done. Most students enrolling struggle with consistency as part of their lack of executive function skill. A major contributor to success would be if you could support them this way while they build skills that lead to more independence once they become “habits of mind”. Students will have homework that will require parent involvement and input to help students find new ways to accommodate their weaknesses by using their strengths in the context of their own world. This homework is a way to help them build self-advocacy skills. This course is also taught in a daily, 1-week CAMP and a FLEX (pre-recorded) version. Students in the camp will still have daily homework.
