Universally Designed Platform
Organized Binder is grounded in a universally designed approach to learning centered on an analog binder. Students build academic knowledge along with executive functioning abilities to deeply engage in their learning.
“Organized Binder has seen and taken action on what so many teachers tend to overlook – students’ lives outside of school are unknown! Students who do not know how to be, act, and/or learn like a student don't know how because they have NOT learned it! Not only did you take note of this, you came up with a way to change it.”

How It Works
Here's a snapshot of a few of the Organized Binder elements including a sneak peek into lessons from our online course.
The first page in Organized Binder is the Goals page. It is colored gold because we want students “going for the gold”! Help students design a clear plan, including an actionable daily task, to turn their academic goal into reality.
A LIFELINE TO KEEP STUDENTS AFLOAT
At the beginning and end each class spend a few minutes with students reflecting on what they've learned. The Weekly Lifeline provides teachers with an authentic formative assessment to guide your instruction, because students are writing to you every class. Students gain daily practice with metacognition and self-assessment.
