"The main change I have seen on campus is the pride of the students. When the CA Department of Education came for a visit students hand delivered their binders to show their work and what they had learned. Students were very reluctant to leave their binders with our CDE representative and came back before they left for the day to re-collect them. Any time you walk in a room, you can ask to see a binder and the students are able to walk through what they have done with fantastic verbal explanations.

SELF-REGULATION

"I started using Organized Binder for the last 4 marking periods. I found a tremendous improvement in classroom management and time students spent on task. This system helps students understand what the expectations are and students of all levels have a sense of belonging in class. For my EL students it clears up a lot of confusion for them and they immediately know what to do when they enter the classroom. I strongly recommend that we have a PD training for all of our teachers."

How It Works

Here's a snapshot of a few of the Organized Binder elements including a sneak peek into lessons from our online course.

SET GOALS

The first page in Organized Binder is the Goals page. It is colored gold because we want students “going for the gold”! Help students design a clear plan, including an actionable daily task, to turn their academic goal into reality. 

A LIFELINE TO KEEP STUDENTS AFLOAT

At the beginning and end each learning session students spend a few minutes reflecting on what they've learned. The Weekly Lifeline provides teachers with an authentic formative assessment to guide instruction, because students are writing to you directly. Students gain daily practice with metacognition and self-assessment. 

Never Miss an Assignment Again

Our Agenda helps students unpack the course syllabus and develop a keen sense of time and task management. They will never miss another assignment due date and they will be better prepared for every assessment while gaining exposure to a skill that will help them thrive in college.

Get Organized. Stay Organized.

We provide an easy and systematic approach to organize every assignment and resource from your course. Using Organized Binder you will turn the course content into a robust student portfolio they can utilize in subsequent classes and future endeavors. 
"I can say unreservedly that Organized Binder is the best teaching tool I’ve found in my time at Olympic High School. I will never teach without it. Benefits to Organized Binder include students have work organized and can find it again, they system provides a very strong classroom format so students know exactly what to expect each day. Also, there is a strong literacy component and it serves as a study guide for district benchmarks and SBAC prep. Organized Binder gives me an insight into what students understand (or don’t understand) as a result of my lessons."
