Before the New Year I wanted to add a couple of things to my posts from 2012. I wrote about executive functioning and how important it is to our students, Executive Functioning: How is it affecting your students? Yesterday I ran across this article and wanted to share it as well.
The author of this article does a great job of explaining what executive functioning is and how it affects our students. I particularly like the chart that shows how executive functioning affects academic areas like Reading and Writing. Check it out.
I also want to add to the post I wrote on Educational Apps . Click on Apps in Education to access a blog about apps you can use in teaching. This blog breaks the apps down by subject and purpose. It is VERY useful.
Finally, I wanted to share this article by Angela Watson, How to work a 40 hour week as a teacher. Angela Watson is an educational consultant in New York and the creator of thecornerstoneforteachers.com. She has a lot of useful resources on her website and I think this is one article that any teacher can appreciate. Teachers are overworked and underappreciated. Teachers go beyond the 7:00-4:00 teaching time. They work nights and weekends often sacrificing time with their family.
Thank you to everyone who has read my blog in 2012. I hope to make 2013 even better.
