Strategy hacks are designed to be bite-sized episodes that provide teachers a practical tool they can use in their classroom immediately to reimagine the learning experience for their students.

Executive Functions (EFs) are higher orders in the brain that allow us to manage and process the world we live in. Despite being extremely important for future success, EFs can seem like an overwhelming academic concept to bring to life in the classroom. In this strategy hack, Becca talks about a practical way to invite students to understand EFs so that they can set personal growth goals.

Significant Quotes:

“Executive Functions are human capabilities and therefore they must be learned. So just like reading, we do not come into the world being able to read, we have to learn it.”
