Grading the process and not just the product is essential in cultivating organization in our students. Also from Maddie Witter, this rubric is an excellent way to share expectations for binder organization with students and provide them with an open understanding of how they will be graded.
This is a great article to share with your students' parents (or inspiration for your own parents guide) on how they can work with you (without enabling) to develop lasting organizational habits in their kids.
This is a great powerpoint from Maddie Witter, adaptable for use with either teachers or students, to demonstrate expectations for organization. I love all of the pictures that help provide clear models for good organization.
This blogpost comes from Larry Ferlazzo (one of my favorites), a teacher and writer in Sacramento. He offers his own great suggestions for keeping students and yourself organized, but also interviews other teacher experts. You can also click on the link within his post to listen to a ten minute podcast on the topic.
