The Middle School Student’s Guide to Ruling the World!

 

Messy binders, missing assignments, failure to follow directions…

Are you concerned that your students are not demonstrating good work habits, time management and organizational skills? You’re not alone. Any middle school teacher knows there is a strong correlation between a student’s work habits, time management, and organizational skills and their performance in middle school. Reports show that many middle school students do not have the academic discipline they need to be on track for college.

It’s no surprise that students struggle with these skills. They’re young and inexperienced, and there’s a lot coming at them at a fast pace. Most have left the comfort of their elementary school having little, if any, training in the kinds of skills they need for success in middle school. Without good, basic organizational skills, middle school students often become overwhelmed, and can begin a downward spiral of underachievement that can last into the high school years and beyond. Fortunately, good work habits, time management, and organizational skills can be taught.

The Middle School Student’s Guide to Ruling the World has 16 classroom-ready lessons in good work habits, time management, and organizational skills. Students learn strategies for success in middle school and beyond. Comics, characters, and 10 fun free audio podcasts and free classroom slides make teachingthis course a breeze to teach!
