Building Students’ Cognitive Capacity and Emotional Intelligence
Emotions play a role in learning, as do the cognitive skills and capacities that students bring to the classroom. Students who struggle because of deficits in underlying cognitive processes, such as working memory, executive functions, and processing speed, can become disengaged, leading to behavioral problems and low social and emotional effectiveness. This presentation examines the interplay between cognition and emotions, focusing particularly on executive functions, and how improving underlying cognitive processes improves student capacity for academic and life success.
