Time Management Tips: Identifying and Prioritizing Tasks

To help students manage their time effectively, encourage them to first think of all the tasks they need to do (assignments, projects, studying, etc.), and write them down.

Next, they should prioritize these tasks, based on importance and how time-consuming they are. It’s helpful to assign each task a letter – A, B, or C – with A indicating a task of high importance and C indicating a task of low importance. Alternatively, they could use a star system – the more stars a task is given, the more important it is.

Priority should be given to important tasks and tasks that will take longer to complete.
