Every year students enter our classrooms with issues or events that have impacted their executive functioning and ability to self-regulate. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely exacerbate this issue and educators are likely to see a sharp increase in students this fall that will struggle with the ability to self-regulate. In order to combat this issue and set students up to be successful at the start of the school year, educators will need to be aware of the tools that they can equip their students with to focus and pay attention, keep their emotions in check, adjust to change or handle the frustration that comes with interacting with others or learning new things.

Today, Brandie Turner and I are speaking with Dr. Richard Cash to discuss the basics of self-regulation and where educators can begin to build self-regulation practices into their classrooms.

What to Listen for:

  • What is self-regulation?
  • What are the ABCs of self-regulation?
  • How is independent learning different from self-directed learning?
  • What strategies can educators use to support their students in developing self-regulation in the classroom?
  • How can educators effectively and efficiently support students with goal setting in the classroom?
  • How is home study different than homework?

My hope is that this episode highlights the importance of self-regulation for all students, no matter their age or ability level, and empowers educators to implement practices that promote self-regulation in their classrooms.
