“The history of classroom design has been to focus on teaching . . . ; but what if, instead, we design classrooms that focus on learning . . . ?” asks Dr. Nancy Sulla in her latest article, “Designing Educational Spaces That Support Executive Function” in the Fall 2018 issue of Essentials magazine.
“Executive function skills are not strengthened through lessons as much as they are through classroom structures and continued use,” Dr. Sulla explains. “Next time you consider designing educational spaces, whether a classroom or entire school, consider how the physical space can promote greater executive function toward increased student achievement.”
