This resource is more than just a ho-hum student planner with calendars and a bunch of organization forms [that most students will be too overwhelmed to touch!]. You are looking at a digital student planner designed around a student planning system THAT WORKS.
When faced with the task of planning, let’s face it, most students have no idea where to even start.
How many times have we handed our students a planner or agenda at the beginning of the school year, required them to copy their homework and reminders that we write for them on the board, but fail to actually teach the skill of what it means to plan… sound about right?
The goal with providing students an academic planner is not to overwhelm them with 100's of pages to help them stay organized. The truth is, they aren’t going to use all of those pages. [Truthfully, they are probably going to take one look at all of those pages and just feel overwhelmed!]
The goal, instead, should be to teach students how to follow a planning system that will keep them organized, while helping them develop planning skills through practice and application, while also be simple enough to start using with consistency.
When I started making planning a regular part of our classroom routine, I saw first-hand the apprehension and overwhelm my students experienced.
So, I decided to create a system that simplified the process, while teaching students the most important habits of planning that they could carry with them into adulthood.
I created a resource that could embody this system and guide students through three fundamental elements of planning.
The fundamental elements of this system are as follows:
•Monthly | Goal-Setting
•Weekly | Habit Development
•Daily | Task Orientation
Besides the skill targets I’ve identified for each fundamental element, I’ve also installed accountability measures within each element for students to use for self-reflection and ownership of their performance.
