Mr. Brad Payne
With the goal of helping students understand the value of and methods for being organized, teachers recommend various means of organization, whether through a paper assignment book or an online organizer. More importantly, teachers walk students through various organizational strategies and model organization for them so that they can learn by hearing, seeing, and doing.
Parents also play an important role in reinforcing and encouraging the development of organizational skills. Parents can start by asking their student to explain his or her organizational strategy. Having examined it, parents can then show the student how they stay organized and suggest ways to improve. This explaining, examining, and sharing of ideas can produce several lasting benefits.
We are blessed to have many students who can do excellent work on English papers and math problem solving, play challenging musical pieces, and make incredible shots in ballgames. As they develop their organizational skills, faithfully keeping track of the requirements for papers, the musical pieces to practice, and when and where the practices will be held, they can enjoy a good product from their proverbial vine and kingdom.
