Tips for improving executive function skills in adolescents

In the August issue of AMLE Magazine, Rick Wormeli (Metaphors & Analogies, Differentiation), explains executive function (EF)—mental processes that help us plan, organize, control emotions, and manage time. “EF in the pre-frontal cortex of the adolescent brain is intermittent at best,” he writes. He also gives 16 practical strategies for helping teens improve their EF.

Don’t miss Rick’s popular series of free videos on fairness in grading, assessment, homework, do-overs, and more, on the Stenhouse website.
