A must read for the 21st century educator!
An example random sentence from the book, "The specific means of control of others, self-regulation, and planning to which children are exposed also play major determining roles in the manner in which children's executive skills become manifest." Yes, the sentences make sense, but it's not an easy read and doesn't bring it to layman's terms.This is a very academic language heavy book. I'm three chapters in, and I really can't give you a good definition of what executive functioning is. I am a special education teacher, and often purchase books about various education topics (Mindset, Multiple Intelligences, etc). All of the previous books I have purchased have put things in to simple terms that I can then easily put in to teaching. This book does not. If you enjoy heavy academic books, maybe this would be good for you. If you're a parent who wants a clear explanation in layman terms of what executive functioning is and specific ways to help your child, this is not your book.
Given the price, I'm really disappointed. I'll be going with a competing book called "Smart, But Scattered", which based on reviews seems to be a better fit for what I'm looking for.
