The new year means dedication to new habits. For many of us, this includes a desire to get more organized. Two resources may be of help; one is paper-based and one is digital. Middle and high school students often have a great deal of homework to keep track of. While many schools provide weekly planners, they are often too small to offer lots of space in which to record assignments, due dates and reminders. Dr’s. Peg Dawson and Richard Guare recently revised The Work-Smart Academic Planner. This portable but comprehensive schedule is particularly helpful for students with executive functioning/disorganization issues and is available here. Another tool that can be helpful to students or adults who are out of school is Habitica. This app allows you to organize your classes, to-do lists, or other goals in a game-like environment. Many people find that it’s fun to use, since you can earn rewards as you accomplish your goals.
