Executive Function Tips for You and Your Child During the Holidays

Executive Function Tips to Help Make the Holiday Table Special

For k-12 and College:

Executive Function is a term given to a variety of cognitive processes (organization, working memory, ability to initiate tasks, switch focus or manage one’s behavior) that allow students to learn and achieve goals.

For your convenience I have posted a printable PDF file with the 24 best reading programs that have the best evidence of effectiveness. 

Believe me when I tell you that only a few years ago, these resources were not available.  It is really a boon for us to be able to find them…

Best Evidence Based Programs for ESSA

Ok, this must be one of my favorite resources yet!

For years teachers were told to use evidence based proven reading programs.

When I called the state to ask for references about which programs are best, they would tell me that they are not allowed to endorse any one program.

Now there is finally a place to find these resources that meet Every Student Succeed Act (ESSA) standards for math and reading.

It provides a free, authoritative, user-centered database to…

Reading Difficulties in Children with Hearing problems vs. Children with Dyslexia

This week I have posted a paper that is published by the Nuffield Foundation, which compared a group of children with dyslexia to children with a history of repeated ear infections (Otitis Media with Effusion, OME) to see if there were any similarities in their phonological and literacy difficulties.

Spoiler alert!

The findings were interesting. 

The results showed that the children with dyslexia do have different patterns of literacy difficulties than children…

Would love to have your students act as expert advisors in the next Flat Classroom® Project 12-2 (September - December 2012)! Here is a link to a page that explains more about the idea -> http://fcp11-3.flatclassroomproject.org/Expert+Advisers

During that project, college students from two schools acted as expert advisors to the high school students in the project.

Prof. Vigliotti, i am too happy to be a link in your East-West chain. Dialogue between these two sides could kickstart new paradigms in teaching-learning. As you might know, personalized learning began in Ancient India through its Gurukul system. Education in the present century has come one full circle where web 2.0 is again giving a personalized learning experience. Let's start searching for new formulas and equations to take education further ahead.

Nice to have met you in the cyberspace. See you!!!!
