Executive Function Skills for Upper Schoolers

For St. Luke’s Upper School students (online course):
Join Learning Specialist Mrs. Teittinen-Schreck for an online workshop to enhance your executive function (EF) skills. EF skills are essential in successfully managing your academic and daily life. Learning these skills can help you become a better planner, a more organized student, and a more strategic test taker.

During each of the four sessions, students will gather synchronously with Mrs. Teittinen-Schreck to work through the course materials, ask questions, and practice key skills. Following the workshop, students will meet both as a group and one-on-one with one of the Learning Specialists for two check-in appointments in the fall.  A detailed description of the sessions is available below.
