Ruling the World - Student Workbook


Step 4

Tool Number 1: The Binder

Place five or six plastic sheet protectors behind the subject divider. Sheet protectors hold class handouts that you’ll need to use or refer to throughout the school year, such as the class schedule , syllabus , rules , project rubrics and reading lists . If your teacher gives you a multiple page handout that has been stapled together, pull it apart and place each page in a sheet protector so each page can be seen. As you receive updated handouts, remove the old ones and replace them with the new ones.


Place 20–25 sheets of binder paper (or graph paper in the case of math) behind the sheet protectors. The binder paper is for homework , class notes , in- class assignments , tests and quizzes . Refill binder paper as needed.

Step 6

Place a 2-pocket folder behind the binder paper section. Open it up. Label the left side of the pocket folder “Handouts &Worksheets.” Label the right side “Homework/Graded Papers/Signed Forms.” The left pocket holds regular class handouts like worksheets and study guides . The right pocket holds your finished homework , graded papers and forms that need to be signed and returned to school . Always place your homework in the right pocket when you finish it. Remove graded papers and store them at home.

Step 7

Repeat Steps 2–6 for each class and activity on your Class and Activity list.
