The American Academy of Pediatrics has emphasized how essential it is for kids to return to learning this fall, as school is a place where students explore opportunities to socialize, receive social-emotional support, and gather essential tools for everyday survival. But the health risks associated with going back to face-to-face classrooms in a pandemic are challenging, and educators face uncertainty and changing conditions. One thing is clear: educators will need to do more and shift to a new learning paradigm.
What can this look like? By explicitly focusing on teaching and building Executive Function skills, educators can help calm students’ state of hypervigilance, nurture their curious-to-learn attitude, and activate goal-focused behaviors.
