  • He's had 2 MONTHS to complete this project and he doesn't know what he needs to do? Don't bail him out. This was his choice. He's the one that needs to listen in class, follow instructions, get the assignments and the tools needed, and take the initiative to do the work. Let him have the natural consequence for his own choice.

  • I give my kids a drafting checklist. It is a list of things that they should do when writing their first draft of a paper. They need to check of the items. When all the items are checked off, they know they are ready to write the final draft of the paper.

  • ActuaLly I have my bb and can't get the PDF files I tried that's why I asked. And no I'm not helping. He has had 2 months to complete this project and is now doing it.:( was supposed to be done by today and. I guess lucked out as there was a sub today, so tomorrow is D-day, he spent the weekend at his moms so he did it kinda half ass. Thank you both for your answer! It helps!

  • I am thinking it's a checklist of what needs to be in the paper and how to write it out. Try the website www.purdue.edu and look for the OWL tab. It's the office of writing lab.

  • Previewing the goals/topics that you are going to discuss in your outline is what my 7th grader and 10th grader said they believe it is. Good Luck...
