Tool Number 1: The Binder
Binder Styles There are many different binder styles and sizes. The capacity of a binder (that means how much stuff it will hold) is determined by the size of the binder rings. Rings for school binders can be anywhere from one half inch (1/2") to three inches (3"). Some binders fasten with Velcro, others zip. Some come with pockets, some with pencil bags. With so many choices, it should be easy to find a binder style that’s right for you. Here’s how:
Standard Style vs. Notebook Style A standard style binder is a three-ring, vinyl binder. They come in all sizes and colors. A standard binder with 1/2" to 1" rings is just right for holding materials for one class. If you want to put materials for more than one class in a standard binder, look for one with rings that are 1.5" or larger. A notebook style binder has three rings, a larger capacity and can easily hold materials for more than one class. The exterior of the binder is made of a water resistant material and it closes by zipper or Velcro. Some come with built in pockets and pencil bags.
