Executive functioning is this year’s buzzword. What are executive functioning skills? Why do they matter? And how do students “get them?”
Executive functioning skills facilitate the behaviors required to plan and achieve goals. The fundamental skills related to executive function include proficiency in adaptable thinking, planning, self-monitoring, self-control, working memory, time management, and organization.
Alexandra Maysler of Thinking Caps Group will discuss executive functioning and share hands-on techniques for fostering EF skills at home.
When you sign up for this workshop, please answer the "what do you hope to learn" question. It will help us tailor the talk to the needs of the audience.
Alexandra Mayzler is the founder and director of Thinking Caps Group. She began her career in education while still a student herself and channeled her personal experiences into creating study methods that her students could relate to. Over a 20-year career, Alexandra has crafted Connect the DOTS, an innovative executive functioning program, created a series of prep courses for standardized tests, and authored several books. In addition to Thinking Caps, she frequently writes and speaks on topics in education and consults with schools. Alexandra lives in New York with her family and spends her free time thinking about how to make studying easier, more interesting, and above all, enjoyable for her students. When she's not helping families, you can find her running on the East River, drinking way too much coffee, and optimistically hoping her three kids will start sleeping until 10am.
