  1. Maybe this could help the students that come to your library ?

    A classic homework problem is that students making the transition from elementary to middle school don’t know how to schedule their time and homework, which often leads to the “I forgot my homework again” blues. You can find lots of tips telling parents and students that they should plan homework but very few that tell you how.

    I couldn’t find a single method or tool that gives students (and parents) at the same time a bird’s eye view of their activities for a few weeks and a close-up view of what needs to be done tonight – all in one glance.

    So, as a member of a planning team (and a parent too), we adapted professional planning methods and developed a free, ultra low-tech, easy-to-make solution for students. Our solution is a tool for the “How do you plan homework and projects”.

    All the information is on a web site ( http://www.plan-it-yourself.com/ ) with a Creative Commons license so that everyone can use it.

    The web site has ready-made planning sheets that can be printed and 3 videos that explain: “Why you need it”, “How to make it”, and “How to use it”.

    Our solution is quick, simple, and free, thus giving students of all economic backgrounds an equal chance to get organized.

    This is the result of our participation in President Obama’s “United We Serve” initiative this summer. http://serve.gov/stories_detail.asp?tbl_servestories_id=193
