Chalk Talk: Homework Time
Your student probably comes home sometimes with so much homework, both of you wonder how it can all be done in one night. It can be frustrating and overwhelming to you and your child. As you and your student determine what needs to be done, consider how much work is really expected of your student to complete in one class. Do teachers require students to work on a Science assignment in one class period? If so, consider how long that class period is. Typically, it is no more than 45 minutes, which also includes a “lesson.” Keep this in mind. Just as determined by teachers, set a specific amount of time your child should spend on a particular assignment at home. It shouldn’t be the same amount as a “class period.” If your child needs more time, have them take a break, either move onto another assignment or do something other than homework. Homework is an extension of school, enhancing the learning and comprehension process. It is to help your student. Guide your student to complete what is expected of them in a time you both determine is sufficient yet not overwhelming, with or without your help.
