Professional Development - Improving Memory and Organization: Tips and Techniques for Boosting Academic Performance

A two-hour interactive professional development presentation focusing on executive functioning skills and the teen brain.

Beth Samuelson, director of SOS 4 Students, will address typical student challenges that hinder learning. Professionals will come away with concrete strategies to implement across subject areas.

Specifically we'll touch on the following key areas of concern for teachers:

  • Adolescent cognitive development and executive skills- how teens’ unique needs must inform instruction approach and lesson design
  • The critical role of working memory and organization in academic success
  • Best practices to enhance and support organization on all fronts, working memory and processing of new and complex information
