About the Book

Learn how to build executive function in students so they can become better learners and critical thinkers. Popular consultant and bestselling author Nancy Sulla walks you through the seven key components of executive function (mental skills)--cognitive flexibility, inhibitory control, planning, problem solving, reasoning, self-awareness, and working memory—and shows why they are so important to learning. She provides a variety of practical activities and structures you can implement immediately to build these skills in students and help them be successful in the classroom, and beyond school doors.
