Quick Tips for Using Your Planners. #4: Use the Cheat Sheets

Do your students view their planners as a valuable recourse or just something they have to bring to class? This month's tip is to allow them to use the "cheat sheets" (resource pages) at the front of their planners during tests or quizes. If you don't want them to have those materials for every test or quiz, then randomly select which ones you'll allow it and don't tell them until just before administering the test or quiz. Students will love having "cheat sheets" and won't want to leave their planners at home.
