Developing excellent study strategies is all about planning and organization. But what most teachers and parents don't know is that the part of the brain that assists with planning, time management, and organization, called executive functioning, is not fully developed until students reach their early twenties.
Helping Students with Planning and Organization
For most young learners, adults need to help create a structured plan and provide assistance when prepping and gathering materials for school. Checklists, graphic organizers, step by step procedures, strategies and more are often required to help develop executive functioning skills, but many adults are overwhelmed with other responsibilities, and it can be difficult to find the time to take on this role.
