Homework Helper #1 or “The first step to success is not forgetting to start!”

When I was in eighth grade, there was only really one way to reliably track your homework: you’d write it down. The only pic calenarquestion was whether you’d write it in a calendar, a binder, or on a scrap of paper. I know I tried them all, with varying degrees of success.

Over the past few days, I’ve discussed homework tracking tools with students in all my classes. I’ve been really impressed. Many of you use an AES agenda along with your Sunrise Calendar. I confess that is my favorite method, maybe because I still use a paper and pencil agenda to keep track of some things! Other students supplement their calendars with apps like Notes or Reminders; this can be especially helpful for larger projects which contain many smaller parts.

I thought it would be interesting to share with each other the systems we use for remembering what we have to do and when we have to do it. Please tell us what you do and why it your think it works for you in the comments below. While you’re at it, why not read what other students are doing? You might learn a new trick or two while you are at it!
