    Id like to share some of my attempts to apply GTD to my work as a teacher.

    Each year I have about 10 classes. In each class there are about 7 mayor themes to treat.
    For years I fought with an increasing amount of paper-based information.
    Then I tried this:
    Each class is treated like a project, each mayor theme as a sub-project.
    I bought a lot of file folders which contain 20 transparent sheets and stuck in every paper which I need for the daily use when Im concerned with that mayor theme. So for example, there is one folder with all the current copies for Goethes "Faust", one for Schillers "Maria Stuart" and so on.

    In GTD terms, all the folders which currently are not active, are reference material.
    The actually active sub-projects (=files) are on a seperate shelf.
    When I go to scool, I grab the 4-6 file folders from that shelf which me serve on that day (like @support material) and make fotocopies for the pupils when needed.

    When Im through with a subject, that folder returns on the reference material shelf and is replaced by the now actual folder.
