Writing Year 12 reports over the last two days has really brought to the fore the power of organisation. Without doubt, the kids who are the most successful in school are those who are organised. I’m really wanting to support my year 12 students with their organisation -both of their time and of their physical stuff. It’s a hard one for me because I’m incredibly disorganised myself, despite my many attempts to be organised.
Today I made some personalised name magnets to help my students visualise their ability to complete homework – see image below. I’ve also created a learning calendar for our current study of Donne and W;t, which hyperlinks to resources, and outlines required homework. I’m open to other suggestions – I can’t control what they do at home, but any tips for what I can do in class to help keep them on track are much appreciated.
