This course will help students better identify their areas of strength and weakness--and focuses on using strengths to accommodate weaknesses. We will cover each of 10 executive function areas throughout the course--explaining each one with real-life examples, going through a personal skills inventory to help students understand where they may need to put in more supports, giving students support options and tips/tricks, and then assigning homework that helps them integrate the supports they...
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. For the last three years this has been for middle schoolers who are preparing for Science Olympiad competition with very little support--so these skills are critical and they have been wonderfully successful!
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 including the skills inventories that help them evaluate their strengths and weaknesses in each area.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
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”. A FLEX class can easily fall off the radar and parents who also struggle with consistency may find this to be a challenge! I suggest setting calendar reminders to help. 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.
