Sucheta Kamath presents: Paving the Path to Equitable Outcomes: Strengthening Executive Function to Empower ALL Students
True equity in education is to prepare all students to become goal-directed, self-driven, and future-focused adults so that they can engage in the global economy and civil discourse while maintaining personal well-being. However, because of the historically rooted disparities, varied practices of schooling and inconsistencies in students’ preparedness, the outcomes aren’t always equitable across race and class lines. A new frontier in education is to expand students’ mental capacity by training Executive Function to sustain engagement, self-motivate, organize materials, prioritize actions, approach learning flexibly, problem solve daily, and maintain emotional equilibrium in and beyond school.
Join Sucheta Kamath to explore the neuroscience of Executive Function and learn how direct and explicit instructional curriculum that promotes the mastery of Executive Function can cultivate the necessary self-awareness and critical thinking skills essential to strategize for learning and life while coping with changing environments and challenging times.
