This section will give you a number of ideas on how to be organized. Of course, you must determine what works best for you. Use a student planner. Take a student planner with you to every class and record each assignment under the date it’s given. Also write down the date each assignment is due. When an assignment is completed, check it off. Use your planner to also keep track of test dates and activities. “When I look at my student planner at the end of the day, it reminds me of which books I need to take home.” Maria “Using a planner helps me get things done on time so I’m not turning assignments in late.” John Break down assignments. Large assignments are much easier to do if you break them down into smaller parts. For example, if you have an English paper that’s due at the end of the week, you could give yourself these four assignments. Mon. – Do outline Wed. – Revise and rewrite Tues. – Write first draft Thurs. – Write final draft After you break a large assignment down, write the smaller assignments in your planner. This will help make sure that you do your big assignments over a period of time, not at the last minute. Use three-ring notebooks for class notes. Have a three-ring notebook for each class, or one large notebook with tabs for each subject. Three-ring notebooks work well because handouts can easily be inserted, and if you do miss a class, you can copy someone else’s notes and insert them where they belong. If you purchase a 3-hole punch and keep it in your notebook, you can hole punch your handouts in class and put them in your notebook as soon as you get them.
