Suggests that students need to learn two types of organisation to be successful: the organisation of supplies and the organisation of behaviour.


Government documents acknowledge research and support the development of work habits such as organisation for all students. The Ministry of Ontario document Growing Success: Assessment, Evaluation and Reporting in Ontario Schools, First Edition, Covering Grades 1 to 12, 2010 is clear, stating that "The development of learning skills and work habits is an integral part of a student’s learning (11) ."

Furthermore, Growing Success reiterates the importance of work habits and list organisation among others. Growing Success validates the need for work habit skills from research carried out by different branches of the govenment all of which are responsible for ensuring that students will become productive, skillful adults.

"
Other jurisdictions may use different names for these skills; however, there is broad agreement, both nationally and internationally, that skills of this type, by whatever name, are critically important to student success. The Ontario Ministry of Education has drawn on its own research, as well as on findings from Human Resources and Skills Development Canada (HRSDC) and the Conference Board of Canada, to develop the Ontario Skills Passport (OSP), which is available at http://skills.edu.gov.on.ca/ OSPWeb/jsp/en/login.jsp. The OSP identifies and describes the following important work habits: working safely, teamwork, reliability, organization, working independently, initiative, self-advocacy, customer service, and entrepreneurship
(12). "


Shawn Grime of the American School Counselor Association writes in his blog about how all students, and especially students with special needs benefit from organizational skills.

It is an hour long video, but absolutely worth it.
