Incorporating Executive Functioning Strategies in the Elementary Classroom – Summer Institute 2019

This course is offered during our Dyslexia Academy for Educators week

This seminar will provide an overview of Landmark’s study skills model, as well as practical hands-on application of study skills strategies and teaching techniques. Specific topics such as organization (e.g., time, space and materials), identifying topics, main ideas and details, two-column note-taking, and micro-uniting and structuring projects will be covered. Participants will have the opportunity to practice and apply some of these strategies during the session to see how the skills can be applied across the curriculum. Participants should bring a textbook or materials that they currently use/will use with students for the application portions of the seminar. This will facilitate their ability to see how the skills covered in this workshop apply to their own curriculum.

Upon completion, participants will be able to:

  • define study skills and explain different study skills strategies
  • demonstrate an understanding of how to incorporate these techniques into their curriculum
  • generate meaningful activities that integrate curriculum and study skills
  • adapt and micro-unit various skills to meet the needs of their students
  • recognize the importance of teaching study skills



This course is appropriate for educators at the elementary school level.



Participants should bring a textbook or materials that they currently use/will use with students for the application portions of the seminar.

Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, and Word Study

Phonemic awareness and phonics are two foundational prerequisite skills for reading development, but current research suggests that word study may be a more appropriate approach for older students.
