Looking for a ways to help your students improve and become aware of their executive functioning? Are you struggling to implement instruction on soft skills while still covering all your standards? If you answered yes to either of those questions, then this reflecting on the learning process resource is for you!
These bell ringer activities are designed to familiarize your students with growth mindset, executive functioning skills, and metacognition! What they are, what they’re used for, and how they might help students feel more in control of their education and their lives. Every Thursday, students will be presented with a scenario, a quote, a thought provoking question, a video, or a comparison. After studying the information, they will
- reflect on their current practices
- rate themselves
- brainstorm ways to improve
- consider how they speak to themselves
- develop ideas about initiative, emotional control, persistence, and more!
This resource is not subject specific. The purpose of these activities is to spark discussion and self reflection. The questions that accompany the slides are designed to be thought provoking and require students to reflect, connect, and think critically about the concepts being presented.
Who is this resource for?
This resource can be used by classroom teachers, tutors, and parents of students in grades 6-12.
