How students organize the many demands of their busy lives is critical to their success at school as well as to their personal sense of control and accomplishment. Because of this, educators have begun to focus on the techniques used by students to manage the materials needed for their schoolwork, manage time when completing assignments, and plan their actions in order to meet learning goals. Having a tool-kit of organizational skills is becoming more important because homework loads have increased. In addition, learning approaches based on discovery and projects rather than lecture presentations and repetitive practice require students to use multiple sources of information rather than a single textbook for each subject. They handle more paper and books, and need to make more decisions about how they approach their work. As a result, effective organizational skills help promote school success for students.
