The Best Resources For Teaching Students About The Dangers Of Procrastination

| 1 Comment


Who among us doesn’t have to deal with the issue of students putting off doing work until right before it’s due?

Dave Stuart Jr. got me thinking about doing a lesson on this topic when he posted his excellent A Simple Activity for Teaching About Procrastination.

I’m planning on modifying his lesson a bit with some of these resources:

Asking These 4 Questions Can Help You Stop Procrastinating is from Fast Company.

How to Beat Procrastination is from The Harvard Business Review.

Why do You Procrastinate, and What Can You do About it? is from The Learning Scientists.


Research Based Strategies For Overcoming Procrastination is from the Harvard Business Review.

Stop procrastinating with a research-backed mental visualization exercise is from Quartz.

Suggestions for Teens (and Others) Who Procrastinate is from The Creativity Post.

The Neuroscience & Psychology of Procrastination, and How to Overcome It is from Open Culture.

Do you have other suggestions?
