Your teen’s academic and social calendar gets busier. An academic planner combines a calendar with an assignment notebook. A good planner usually has a weekly view, a column for each day and a list of classes on the side. Having a monthly view, too, can help give your child a broader look at what has to get done. Your teen also might find it useful to have a large family calendar hung in the kitchen, so that all of the events are visible for the month.
