By utilizing only the first and last few minutes of class Organized Binder systemically increases student active engagement and participation, and reduces classroom management issues.
Organized Binder develops executive function and non-cognitive skills through daily exposure to goal setting, reflective learning, time management, study strategies, organizational skills, and more.
Organized Binder fosters an academic community that encourages participation from all stakeholders. Our system is helping schools receive the California Gold Ribbon Award and earn the highest possible WASC scores!
Organized Binder provides a framework for parents to help students to get and stay organized, as well as track student course performance, and more.
For students who need to learn how to be a 'student', i.e. how to approach schooling in a classroom setting with a disciplined sense of time, task and effort, it is absolutely invaluable. I have seen the effect of its use in classes with teens who haven't yet built an organized approach to their own lives, and the effect is class settings suffused with a most businesslike atmosphere of order and task accomplishment.
Organized Binder is beyond spectacular because it addresses both the needs of students and teachers by providing a system to organize learning.
I thoroughly enjoy Organized Binder as a dynamic component in my Biology class and my 2 sections of AP Biology. It aligns perfectly with the Common Core & Next Generation Science Standards, making students read, write, and think!
My failure rate dropped by half in just two weeks thanks to the Organized Binder!
The way it is helpful it keeps you organized, everything is color coordinated so it is extremely easy if a teacher tells you to turn to something and you say, oh, that is the color and you know right where it is.
As a veteran teacher I was shocked by the dramatic impact that using the binder system had on my practice. A few minutes spent on organizational structures purchased for me a twofold increase in homework submissions and immeasurable buy-in from otherwise disenfranchised students.
This organizing program is one of the best I've seen. It is so beneficial to struggling English learners and students with disabilities. We are recommending all of our program improvement schools, particularly in grades 4-12, use this program.
Organized Binder is one of the most successful and manageable tools I have seen used in classrooms. This system ensures that every student is on task, takes away work from already overwhelmed teaching loads, and helps students to not only do better in class, but gives them a skill that will enable them to be successful adults.
Organized Binder is a outstanding program for all students. I have used it successfully in two schools, and am now looking at introducing it to my new district. It teaches students to be organized, and actively take part in their learning. It helps students at all levels, and contributed to improved success in both of my last schools.
My son and I sat down late at night after sports practice to finish his HW. I told him to open his Organized Binder to the Academic Toolkit section and guess what was right there? A handout that explained exactly what we were struggling with. She apparently handed it out earlier in the week and since we filed it away properly, it was right there. This may seem small, but I am sharing this with you because this would have never happened if we didn't reorganize in this way.
