Here are some commonly accepted tips to manage time more effectively. There is actually a whole industry dedicated to time management and the handout, Time Saver Tips, is based on that industry’s research.

After reading the handout, pick two tips you could apply to your internships. Complete the handout by including how the tips, as well as the suggestions they generated, might help you improve your performance. Be specific!

Teacher Notes

In the same small groups as above, ask students to brainstorm ideas for saving time. Have them share out the ideas with the whole group.  Do a round-­robin read aloud of the handout, Time Saver Tips and have them pick the two tips they’d like to focus on.

Ask for volunteers to share one of the tips they chose and tell how it could improve their internship experience and make them a more successful, professional intern.

Use the word of the week, prioritize, to help process this activity.
