Student Academic Success Strategies - Checklist Maker

Success in school depends on the student acquiring effective 'academic survival' skills such as study skills, time management, and homework completion. The Academic Survival Skills Checklist Maker is a free application that allows teachers, students, and parents to assemble 'how to' checklists that can be used to train students in essential academic-support skills. These checklists are a great way to promote student independence and accountability! (For suggestions on how to use these checklists, download Jim Wright's Academic Survival Skills Checklists: 5 Ways to Help Students to Become Effective Self-Managing Learners.)
