It takes a long time to learn how to think “long-term”!
At QualityPlanners.com all of our student planners, from primary through college, start from a foundation that planning is vital – and that planning can be learned. All of the student planners include generous organizational and calendar features, from day to day to monthly.
In our High School student planner, we have also included a useful guide to help high school students with the type of lengthy assignment that they’ll face in high school, college and the workplace. This guide outlines nine essential steps in the process for successfully completing a long-term assignment. The steps encompass outline, research, note taking, information gathering, writing a rough draft, proofreading, final draft, bibliography and preparation of visual aids.

At-a-glance, a high school finding this feature in his or her high school student planner has a comprehensive framework for planning and completing a long-term assignment in a thorough fashion.Seeing the steps laid out, with time and dates, a student can slowly gain an appreciation for the necessity (and rewards) or thinking “long term.” With so many voices urging immediate gratification, this guide for handling a long-term assignment provides a healthy alternative to pressures to surrender to impulse and see school in terms of short-term horizons.
