I am very excited that Plan-It has a new line of planners developed specifically for Middle School and High School students! They incorporate goal-setting right into the planner pages, and are packed with tips on goal setting, effective studying, internet safety and loads more.
Plan-It planners I have reviewed. The layout is the same in both the Middle School and High School planners. Both of these planners run from August 2011 through July 2012.
The inside cover has all of 2011 at a glance. The first page has spaces to write your personal information, emergency contacts and other information.
There are pages to write your class schedule for easy reference.
And there are LOADS of information pages! I won't show them all, but there are pages for Study Tips; Study Skills with advice on different learning methods; Goal Planning tips and space to list goals in different categories; excellent pages with information about Internet Safety; Test Taking Tips, Social Studies facts (shown below), details on the Branches of U.S. Government and how they work; English parts of speech, punctuation, spelling tips, and rules for capitalization; a huge list of Commonly Misspelled Words; Science tables of measurements, metric system equivalencies, conversion tables between U.S. and metric measurements; Geometry angles and shapes. There's tons of information packed into this book for handy reference!
The weekly pages have lined day spaces with loads of room to write, even on the weekends. Holidays are also printed in these day spaces, and there is a reference calendar of the current month. I really like the color scheme in the Middle School planner, the pages are so nice to look at!
Starting in July the calendar switches to a week per page, saving pages during the summer when you probably will use your planner less than during the school year. Inside the back cover is a reference calendar for all of 2012.
As you might imagine, I especially love the Goal Setting pages (which I specifically didn't show a photo of because I don't want to give away any secrets!) and the space in the monthly pages to write goals, to keep them visible all the time. Plan-It, I would love to see a "grown up" version of this planner with pages of goal-setting tips and spaces to write goals on the monthly and weekly pages. This is extremely useful for everyone, at any age.
Many, many thanks to Plan-It for sending me these planners as samples to review! They are excellent for students of any age, and anyone at all really. I would highly recommend these for anyone looking for an academic-year planner.
