  • Translates to importance of reflection and feedback
  • Components of Executive Function Based upon material from Barkley and Brown, I have outlined five general components of executive function that impact school performance: Working memory and recall (holding facts in mind while manipulating information; accessing facts stored in long-term memory.) Activation, arousal, and effort (getting started; paying attention; finishing work) Controlling emotions (ability to tolerate frustration; thinking before acting or speaking)Internalizing language (using "self-talk" to control one's behavior and direct future actions)Taking an issue apart, analyzing the pieces, reconstituting and organizing it into new ideas (complex problem solving).
  • Mental management – get ready (visualize task, quiet time)Set goalsKeep track of thinking – self monitoringafter thinking reflectStrategic spiritState-Searcg_Evaluate_ElaborateTransfer- take knowledge and apply it- - this for me is the relevance and hook think- sense and meaning-

      The Disposition to reason clearly and carefully
      The Disposition to organize one’s thinking
      The Disposition to give time to thinking
      From The Thinking Classroom-Learning and Teaching in a Culture of Thinking, Perkins, Tishman, Jay

      Use your “red hat” to answer this raft?
      Which hat did you use?
    • 33. Scamper Prompts
    • 34. Totally 10
      Totally 10 is a student choice format for differentiating projects or assessments. Each task a student chooses is given a score of 2,4,6, or 10, where the higher scores reflect greater challenge and complexity. Students must select either one project with a score of 10, or several that add up to a score of 10. Students will choose rigor to do fewer projects. Totally 10 may also be used to design an assessment. Students choose which questions they will answer as long as the total point score equals 10. This
      gives students choice and lets them think they are making up their own test. (Heacox, 2002).
      Shift to selecting three hats to complete a unit-

    • 46. The "How People Learn" FrameworkThe "How People Learn" (HPL) framework takes the form of four overlapping lenses (see Figure 1) that can be used to analyze and enhance any learning situation (Bransford et al., 1999). Harris, Bransford, and Brophy (2002) describe the following dimensions of HPL learning environments:
      1. Learner centeredness. Instruction is tailored, based on a consideration of learners' prior knowledge as well as their prior experiences, misconceptions, and preconceptions about an instructional topic.
      2. Knowledge centeredness. Issues related to what learners need to know are emphasized, along with how knowledge is structured and applied in various contexts. (This lens has implications for how instruction should be sequenced to support comprehension and use of this knowledge in new situations.)
      3. Assessment centeredness. Frequent opportunities to monitor students' progress toward the learning goals are provided. Results are fed back to both instructors and learners.
      4. Community centeredness. This HPL lens recognizes that students are members of multiple communities, including their classrooms, their departments, and their future professions. Opportunities encourage students and instructors to share and learn from each other.
