Teacher Saves World E26: If I Were Principal: Organizational Skills

Podcasts

Laurie & Matt shift their “If I Were Principal” segment from their regular episodes to stand alone content in their bonus episodes. After Matt admits that he had erroneously been calling the segment “If I WAS Principal” (Microsoft Word’s grammar correction showing him the error of his way), he goes on to make a suggestion to improve students’ organizational skills. Wistfully remembering the bygone days of every student being given an agenda planner, Matt suggests that technology’s encroachment into education has led us to believe that explicit teaching of organizational skills has evaporated because everything is “searchable.” Laurie & Matt then discuss ways that we could help our students get a handle on the flood of important information coming their way on a daily basis, and why it’s a vital skill to develop heading into adulthood when being late may mean the lights get turned off.

We started Teacher Saves World! to unite teachers and parents in saving the world, one teenager at a time. We're high school teachers and parents of two teens ourselves, so while we love the little ones, that turbulent time between childhood and adulthood is our wheelhouse. We also think high school is four of the most important years in a person's life, and each teen needs an army of caring adults that are dedicated to making sure they're ready to thrive in adulthood. We're taking an Avengers approach: We need everybody to pitch in! We're all superheroes when we care about helping teenagers grow up into confident and capable adults.
