Organizing Boys

Here's an interesting article on helping specifically boys get organized in school from NYT this morning. The particular system described sounds complicated to me, but I like the idea of organizational tutors. I only wish this were something we could accomplish in the schools without needing private tutors. I do what I can with my elementary students, but this is really for middle, high and college.

The students at my school get agendas to fill out. Just that would have helped me immensely. I wish the teachers and parents utilized it to it's full potential, but it's a great start.
