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:
