This is a great article. I work with students at our local Boys and Girls Club. I am always seeking ways to integrate their content with their personal experience. Clearly, most children do not have the personal reference points to fully process and understand the information they are expected to learn. Finding opportunities to prompt the exploration of EF is critical to help make meaningful connections between what is being covered instructionally and how it relates to the student personally and socially. It also gives them the tools to continue processing information and experiences in this fashion on their own. It is all about empowering achievement. Thanks again!

These strategies seem to be easily applicable to an English or history class, however, I can only think of ways to use prioritizing and organizing time, thoughts, and actions for a math classroom. Both would be in reference to a project. I'd love additional ideas for applying these concepts to math.
