Chalk Talk: Tips for Doing Homework
Homework will be a breeze if you follow two simple tips that work. You must first allow a time and second a place to do it. Schedule a definite time frame each day for homework. Have a place that you do homework that is quiet, comfortable and easy to access. With a time and a place set out you will find that the work is not so onerous. In the place, have a flat desk or table, a good light and a comfortable chair. Homework takes a lot less time if you attend to it in a reasonable time frame and have a reasonable place to do it.
