Your students will learn these important keys to Time Management:
Prioritizing - Everything you want to do must be assigned an order of importance
Realistic Expectations - Know your personal, team, and organizational limits
Using Boundaries - Don’t let people change your priorities without your consent
Resource Management - Know what you have at your disposal before committing
Understanding Yes and No - Learn to use these words at the very right time for each
Time management is a challenge for most people today. With the technology we have, there are so many things we can do that it is hard to fit everything in. There are classes to go to, texts to answer, chores to do, friends to hang out with, and when those things are done, we would like to have time to relax. That is the problem. We are trying to do everything and allowing ourselves to be managed by things instead of us managing things. Just because we can do so many things, does not mean we have to do them all.
Everything you need to teach the lesson and carry on the discussion exercises with your class is on the slides. This presentation is taken directly from the workbook pages and is a great compliment to the workbook. You can use this presentation in conjunction with the workbook or as a stand alone resource. We also include “My Ownership Pledge” which challenges the students to take personal Time Management for their behavior, lives, and personal growth.

This resource will help your students learn what Time Management is, how they need to change their behaviors, and how to use it in their own life through goal setting. There are two discussion sections in the lesson which you can use with the entire class or break them up into small groups. It has an easy to understand model for the skill describing the necessary behaviors, the destructive behaviors, and misconceptions. There is a section for personal goal setting and the opportunity to pick a real life situation to practice the skill. The student begins to learn how their behavior impacts those around them by identifying two people who will benefit from their growth in Time Management. Finally, a reflection section is included for the end of the week so the student can reflect on what they have learned and how it has changed them. This can also aid in Common Core goals. Harvard’s Graduate School of Education in a recent paper states: ”Educators and social and emotional learning (SEL) experts are increasingly acknowledging that building students’ SEL skills can help schools meet the Common Core State Standards(CCSS).” (https://mcc.gse.harvard.edu/files/gse-mcc/files/sel_and_common_core_1.pdf)
