I intend to share this post with the families of my students, because a few of them are only struggling because of many of the ideas mentioned here. Thank you! I hear you! We cross out old planner pages and keep a minimalist backpack. Furthermore, I have review sheets laminated in sheet protectors for the car ride for study space 4 sing-along study time commute :.
This is really overboard, Mom! I think the missing puzzle piece for me is consistency. Playing video games is a worthless break, in my opinion, but I want to honor their need to relax. I want to learn more. I loved this. Now I understand why the student was successful in one teachers class but not in the other teachers…. It makes so much sense!! Thank you. Great stuff. Unfortunately, I am in a system that insists on 3 ring binders and those year-long planers I laughed about just now.
Thanks for this and all you do. Maybe if they insist students use the 3 ring binder, add in the colored folders for each class. They would still be separated and more readily accessible. Not needing to click open the 3 ring binder, just get the paper out of the folder.

Talk to the school. Thank you for posting this—I am going to share it far and wide. Concise and well-organized information. Seth works with high school students and has done work with some college students. You may want to reach out to him on his website at sethperler. Thank you for this information! He has 2 speeds- mph and lethargic. These are great suggestions, but they require a lot of home support. Not all kids have access to a dedicated study area.
Some kids come home to an empty house or get themselves to school in the morning if their parents work unusual hours. Many teachers will take on the task of mentoring students, and other teachers solve the problem by making sure most of the work stays in the classroom. Our school uses the folder system, but getting all the pieces in place for a disorganized student is tricky. Thanks for sharing this ideas… is very useful for my personal life and for my students… I will your blog with them.
Great Podcast! I was picturing several students faces while I listened. It will certainly change how I handle folders in the future. BTW What is up with your website? I have tried it in both Chrome and Explorer. Try your tech department and see if they can fix it! This was a great podcast.
I feel like it could definitely be useful for some of my students, but I also think I was one of those kids who struggled with executive function. I compensated by memorizing as much as I could — and I was bright enough to finish homework at school most of the time. I still constantly have an enormous bag of paper that always needs sorting. I never could use a planner. I compensate by keeping as much as I can electronic.
What do you do when a student absolutely refuses to use a planner, modified or not? This after admitting daily they forgot.
Bank Street School for Children
They are in high school and they are not responding to treating them like an adult, positive or negative consequences, scaffolding things to the nth degree, natural consequences, etc. The funny thing is they show up to their classes every single day and do very little in class work and zero homework, even when someone sits with them, they choose to distract, avoid, etc. When I was in school I failed all of the suggestions that were listed from Elementary school through high school. Do these students test well?

I always tested well because I just wanted to move on to the next thing. Probably much of this had to do with undiagnosed ADHD on top of issues with homelife which was mentioned in previous comments. I agree with everything here except the separate folders for each class. If, for example, a middle school student has potentially six to eight different classes — that is up to 8 folders that need to be managed. This includes transport from class to class and from school to home and vice versa. One master notebook binder eases the demand on the EF systems required for materials management and organization.
We implement such a system at Delaware Valley Friends School- a school for children with learning differences including EF needs.
We took the lead from Landmark College and are quite happy with the results. The key to success is consistent implementation and procedures across all classes and buy in from the faculty. I am interested to hear others thoughts and experiences. I loved this post so hard! And I can think of so many students this applies to!

For maintained schools, section 91 Education and Inspections Act stipulates that for a penalty to be reasonable, consideration must be given to:.
Examples of disciplinary measures are:. Teachers have the power to issue detention to pupils under A school does not need the consent of a parent before issuing detention. Detention can take place during school hours and in some circumstances outside of school hours. This includes:.
compmontpopost.tk One way of safeguarding against this would be to inform parents of the detention. Where seclusion or isolation rooms are used for disruptive pupils, this should be clearly outlined within the behaviour policy. Any use of isolation that prevents a child from leaving a room of their own free will should only be considered in exceptional circumstances. The school should ensure that pupils are kept in seclusion or isolation no longer than is necessary and that their time spent there is used as constructively as possible.
Schools should ensure the health and safety of pupils and allow pupils time to eat or use the toilet. The school can exclude a pupil from school on a fixed term or permanent basis. School staff can use reasonable force to either control or restrain pupils. Under section 93 Education and Inspections Act , all members of school staff have a legal power to use reasonable force.
It can also apply to people whom the head teacher has temporarily put in charge of pupils, such as unpaid volunteers or parents accompanying pupils on a school organised visit. The decision on whether or not to physically intervene is down to the professional judgement of the member of staff concerned and has to be judged on a case-by-case basis, depending on the circumstances.
