Why Are We Teaching Organization and Homework Strategies?

Learning to plan effectively enhances students’ ability to make sense of their world and experience.

(Dewey, 1980; Gardner, 1983; Marzano, 2003; Vygotsky, 1978)

Students who complete and turn in homework do better in school.

(Cooper, Lindsay, Nye & Greathouse,1998)

Students who are exposed to variety of study strategies are higher achievers.

(Meneghetti, De Beni & Cornoldi, 2007)
