Executive Function Skills

School Specialty Inc. has a free white paper , “Executive Function Skills,” that explains how academic success is dependent on a student’s consistent time-management and planning skills. The paper provides details about the importance of focusing classroom instruction on self-regulation, self-awareness, goal-directed behavior, self-monitoring and flexibility to solve problems and aid students in developing a study plan, setting goals and developing action plans.  The paper explains the research in executive function skills and gives suggestions for the classroom.  The School Specialty web page has many excellent free resources that counselors could use.
