Workshop Description: Life Skills all involve what researchers call “executive functions of the brain”—functions that weave together social, emotional and intellectual capacities, enabling us to use what we know in pursuit of our goals. Typically, learning and teaching have focused on the content that children need to learn, but children need both content and Life Skills. Evidence-based research shows how these Life Skills help children thrive now and in the future. 2017 NH Early Learning Standards: Building executive function is crucial for learning and development.
