I am not a middle school teacher but I believe this behavior is common all schools. I have been in the high school system and it is the same. In my university now it is the same. Procrastination is at the heart of this issue, they get the assignments and think they have all the time in the world to do it.

We as teachers should highlight this issue with our students, as the habit might follow them through life. Also parents should play there part in showing interest in their children school life. Making sure all assignments are done on time and if not certain privileges should be taken away, they might not care about loosing marks with the teacher but loosing the internet or tv for a week or two now that's something. it would be a win win situation all around for everyone.
