In fact, at this level, it becomes even more valuable.

Take a Closer Look

Improve student achievement.

This planner uses candid, straight-forward language for students to understand how to get tasks done with minimal stress. When students feel equipped to tackle obstacles, they are willing to address them and are more likely to succeed. This skill is transferable throughout their education and into the real world.

Completed assignments. Higher test scores.

Studying and test-taking are essential skills for school and life. Learning these skills equips students to accomplish directed tasks and builds self-confidence to perform to the best of their abilities.

Supported with educator tools.

To ensure our products are easy to use and provide the most impact possible, we provide extra resources that help educators integrate the program into the classroom. Learn more about our product support in the Online section above.

Easy to understand. Easy to apply.

The 101 breaks down sometimes complex concepts into bite-sized modules, which enable students of all abilities to grasp and immediately apply the skills being learned.

Students taught to monitor their own performance.

Self-assessment activities throughout the planner help students evaluate their own success and identify where improvements are needed. As students accept more responsibility for their achievements, they increase their level of participation.

Set the tone at home.

Aim to help every student learn in a positive environment at home–establish and reinforce work habits and a healthy attitude toward school and learning–by providing the tools for parents to become partners in their child's education. The 101 provides busy parents with easy activities, suggestions, communication tools and information, making it fun for parents to be involved.

Teach students stress-busting tactics.

With The 101, students learn how to work through stressful situations by defining what stress is, learning how to identify stress in their own lives, knowing how to tell when they are stressed, and engaging tactics and outlets for overcoming and minimising anxiety. This helps students approach tasks more easily, allowing them to perform them better and feel good about their accomplishments.
