or maintained on a teacher’s webpage. Information from the Class Schedule or Calendar should be copied into their planner, one to two weeks at a time. If there is no homework for a class on a given night, students should write in their planner “N/H” for “No Homework.” 3. Personal Schedules Events and appointments, such as doctor’s, dentist and orthodontist’s appointments, club or tutoring meetings, sports practices, games, special occasions, vacations, religious holidays and birthdays make up a student’s personal schedule. Knowing their personal schedule helps students manage their time. Also, a student’s personal schedule often impacts another person’s schedule. Can they think how? (i.e., a parent needs to know about a change in a sports practice time, or a carpool driver needs to know when a student will be absent from carpool due to an appointment, etc.) Copying so much information (annual, class and personal schedules) into a planner is tedious. But only by tracking all three schedules in their planners, can students get the “big picture” or the “radar view” of their responsibilities. That is the key to successfully managing their time! 4.
