There are a few items that all kids need for back to school, but a high school back to school list is different from the rest. All students can use number 2 pencils, erasers, notebooks and/or binders and loose-leaf paper. The teachers at TeachHub.com point out that when kids hit high school, however, they require additional items that are a bit more advanced. Calculators, protractors, graph paper, flash drives and thesauruses are some of the items Good Housekeeping lists on their official high school back to school list.
Referencing a few different “official” lists can be useful to help teachers create their own lists to hand out at the beginning of the year. As a high school teacher, you focus on one or two subjects. The students in your English class won’t need a protractor, but highlighters, a binder with divers and a dayplanner or calendar for marking down assignment deadlines might be items you would put on your list. Additionally, Greatschool.org reminds school-shopping parents and teachers not to forget index cards, pens and printer paper and ink cartridges for the home computer.
