With both my academic support courses and my freshman courses I have them complete a weekly study plan. It's a 24/7 plan where they plan what they are doing each day and each hour.  They can't just list homework; they have to list what they are doing -- what class, what assignment(s).  They list their courses, when they go to work, and so forth.  They also do a monthly plan where they list all their due dates and then other things they need to plan around (like a trip). 

They do some written reflections about how it feels when they don't use their time effectively and they do small group class discussions on tips and tricks they use to manage their time.

I show short videos and cartoons that are funny but make the point. 

Looking forward to your responses. 

Thanks,
