Self-Management Skills for Middle School Students

In middle school, students must learn to adapt to the expectations of several different teachers who may schedule tests and due dates for projects on the same day.

Parents and teachers may notice:

  • Organizational challenges: The student has difficulty organizing - whether a backpack, a desk, or multi-step directions for class assignments, the student may lose or forget to turn in homework
  • Behavior or emotional management challenges: The student is impulsive or easily frustrated, cannot resist online distractions, has difficulty settling down to do work and persisting with tasks
  • Time management challenges: The student leaves work until the last minute, causing panic and stress at home
  • Academic challenges: The student may lack persistence or often not start or complete even small assignments
  • Self-care challenges: The student needs reminders to complete grooming or hygiene routines or household responsibilities

Beyond BookSmart coaches help students uncover their individual motivators, develop strategies for success, and ensure that they are equipped with a toolkit for the world beyond academics.
