Marge Weiner, director of The Total Learning Center in Neptune, NJ, has been specializing in working with learning disabled students since 1982. Marge believes that the lack of a systemic approach to organization for all students is the root of diminished success for students of all ages and abilities. Her realization became a dedication to improving the organizational skills of her learning disabled students. Now, almost 30 years later, she is calling on reform throughout the education system by asking schools to adopt more formalized organizational training for all students.
The Organized School Binder was created by Marge to help her students learn proper organizational skills that can be applied to all aspects of their lives. The binder teaches students how to categorize and encourages forming healthy habits that frown upon clutter and disarray. The system is especially helpful for learning disabled students who often need systems in place to ensure a structured and attainable learning experience.
Marge’s system is about simplicity and she says teaching students the Organized School Binder approach early in life provides an excellent opportunity to prevent them from failing later on.
The Organized School Binder is a three ring binder that incorporates various useful organizational tools such as tabbed sections for each school subject. Instead of buying dozens of folders for each subject, the Organized School Binder has ONE folder which students use during the day to store their paperwork. At the end of each day, students must organize and file their papers behind the proper subject tabs.
Marge believes that organization is the key to success in many areas of our lives, “We are trying to teach students how to organize their time and their materials. These skills transfer over to everyday tasks in life. We categorize and organize all day long, sometimes without even knowing it,” says Marge.
Marge is calling on schools nationwide to adopt her 3 ring binder system for students as young as 1st grade. “It’s preventative medicine,” says Marge, “Let’s teach them organization before they become disorganized.”
