Chalk Talk: How to Teach Academic Responsibility
As children go through their primary and secondary years in school, one goal all parents and teachers should share is to teach each child how to be responsible for their own academic success and downfalls. Part of that should be an ongoing expectation of organization and good study habits. Many schools utilize agendas that are basically day timers, with subjects listed and room for writing assignments. It is crucial that parents look at that daily and hold the student accountable for writing assignments and tests and then following through on what is due. Not only will this small task help the student get his homework done timely, it will ultimately improve tests grades and form a valuable habit that will serve students well in life.
