Use these handouts to guide 4 lessons on organizational skills for middle or high school: backpack and binder organization, using your day planner and locker effectively, time management, and setting up an effective homework space. I generally start the session by covering the handout, and then do an activity or have a discussion directly related to that topic. For backpack and binder organization, I ask students to clean out their backpacks and reorganize together. For the day planner lesson, we go through our school-provided planners and write down any sports, birthdays, and homework we can think of. I check their planners at the beginning of the next 2 lessons.
