To succeed in school, students need more than subject area knowledge: they must learn how to learn.

Self-regulation, an executive functioning skill, describes the ways that students focus attention on achieving success. Self-regulated learners find personal value in learning, develop effective study habits, welcome challenges, seek help, and use failure as a learning tool.

This user-friendly guide makes the process of developing self-regulation as easy as ABC:

  • Affect (how you feel)
  • Behavior (what you do), and
  • Cognition (how you think).

Teaching students to balance these three elements builds motivation, resilience, and college and career readiness.

Digital content includes the book’s customisable reproducible forms and a PDF presentation for professional development.

"Dr. Cash’s in-depth, well-researched, and insightful book addresses both the socioeconomic and the academic-intellectual needs of all students. It is filled with sound theory, interesting concepts, and practical strategies. Throughout the book, he emphasizes the world of 21st century students with its information overload and constant distractions. He offers ways for kids to learn how to focus, build self-confidence, set goals, think deeply, manage their time and their stressors, and study effectively. I highly recommend this book not only for those new to the profession but also for veteran teachers who sometimes bemoan, 'The kids today just aren’t like the ones I used to teach years ago.'"
- Carolyn Coil, educational consultant and author

Cash addresses the need for innovative educational strategies when teaching our 21st century, technology-driven students. Grounded in theory and up-to-date research, this book serves to educate the reader and provide tools that will promote student engagement and autonomy in learning. Self-Regulation in the Classroom has my highest recommendation and will become an essential text to be used when developing career and college readiness skills in my students."

"Rich in research and theory but practical enough for Monday morning classroom activities, this book is for anyone looking to increase student engagement and help students regulate their thinking and behavior.
