Lazy--or Not?
Dawson, Peg
Educational Leadership, v68 n2 p35-38 Oct 2010
Child psychologist Peg Dawson explains that some students who appear to be lazy simply lack the executive skills they need to stay organized and get their work done. She tells the story of Josh, a student with attention problems whose academic performance started plummeting in middle school. With the help of a coach, Josh learned to manage his time better and complete his assignments. Dawson shares several time management and child psychology strategies schools can use to help students like Josh with study skills. She suggests implementing an RTI framework in which all students receive some support for developing study skills, and other get additional help in small groups or individually if they need it.
