Executive Functioning: Breaking a Project Into Steps
With older students, when you start working on a project (even one that seems small or simple), you can start to practice project planning. These skills can help students prepare for college or the workplace by helping them with some of the executive functioning skills needed to complete work independently.
One of the first steps you can do is to help the student identify exactly what they need to produce for the project. Then, you can practice breaking it into steps and assigning dates or times to complete each step by. Here's an example of a blank sheet you can use for this purpose, as well as one filled out for an example.
The project we were completing in the example for was a tiny house design project that I bought on TeachersPayTeachers. https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Tiny-House-STEM-Floor-Plan-Design-3456616
