Students need help with organization. Let me say that again.
STUDENTS NEED HELP WITH ORGANIZATION!
I teach high school and many of my kiddos still need help with organization!
Here are a few things that I have done to help them along the way.
- Google Docs Calendar
This is a year-long calendar where I add a new month at the top but students can see all of the previous months. You can also add hyperlinks to Google Classroom assignments or other activities you want students to see.
This is also helpful when you go to plan for next year. You have your whole year to look at. This calendar is easy to embed in Canvas or link to Google Classroom.
2. This week in
I started doing this when we were full remote. On Sunday evening I would post this in Google Classroom so students would have an idea of where we were going for the week. This is a Slides Mania template that I used.
3. Weekly Agendas
Sometimes students needs daily reminders. You can have them complete this or you can complete it in advance.
I know there are many other ways to help keep your students organized. Google Classroom and Canvas both have build in calendars that you can use. You can also teach your students how to use these tools.
