Building Study Skills and Executive Functioning for School Success

Building Study Skills and Executive Functioning for School Success

Designed for students in secondary school, this book of exercises and lessons helps them develop study strategies that include organisation, reading comprehension, note-taking skills, and test-taking skills. It first describes the executive functions of the brain-the processes that help people stay organised, manage time, pay attention, plan future behaviour, and inhibit behaviour-then provides the practical strategies needed to develop those functions.

The practical exercises provided help with attention, communication, memory, time management, and self-control-valuable lessons for studying that are essential for proper learning and retention. By improving the way students prepare for school and learn, school success can be achieved.
