Woodstock School Memories: The Student Survival Kit

This was the first manual/user guide I ever wrote, a student handbook for Woodstock School, incorporating the school’s rules and policies, survival tips, a fill-in class schedule and diary pages. I wanted to make the rules easier to understand, and more accessible, by applying simpler, clearer language and a sense of humor. Apparently it worked. I heard from students who worked on revisions 20+ years later that my style was still the template for student handbooks at Woodstock.

Unfortunately, I haven’t figured out how to get the pages in order in this gallery.

The cartoon illustrations are mostly by my classmate, Jeet Singh.

    Funny… The one thing I’ve always remembered from that was the “Commando knife – for everything that moves on your plate except the Jello…”

    How true it was at times too, and most people only think of it as a joke… 😉
