This Thursday night, November 6, at 7:30pm in the Arts Building Music Room, we are pleased to have Paula Moraine offering a talk for parents. The event is free and open to the public. Paula Moraine, M.Ed., will be speaking on attention issues and offering techniques to strengthen our children's executive function, time management, and more.
Paula has been a Waldorf class teacher and administrator; a tutor for elementary, high school, and college students; and a university adjunct, mentor, coach, and adult educator in teacher training programs in the US, Germany, and Scotland. Paula’s book Helping Students Take Control of Everyday Executive Functions – The Attention Fix has been translated into Dutch, Spanish, and Finnish. She is currently in private practice in Maryland.
Are students losing their ability to self-regulate? Is "self-regulation" another word for obedience? What about the debate on willpower and that hard-to-define concept du jour, "grit"? This piece on the “academic diligence task” raises complex questions.
