"Procrastination-Proofing Students"

Understanding procrastination and helping students work through its larger themes is the focus of a recent Inside Higher Ed blog by Steven J. Corbett and Michelle LaFrance. They write:
It seems to us that the more we understand procrastination and think it through with our students, the more we can help them build lifelong habits that allow them to be successful in our writing classes. Indeed, antiprocrastination habits can also help students manage the many competing priorities in their busy schedules as well as help us all remember what’s really important in life.
In the blog, Corbett and LaFrance discuss different causes of procrastination, some potential benefits, how to help students think through their procrastination habits, and the enduring advantages of procrastination awareness.
