Resources for Parents/Students
During conferences with parents, we frequently hear, "there is no homework." The point needs to be made that although no specific homework has been assigned, there is still homework: It's called study time. We strongly recommend that all students spend a minimum of one half hour of homework/study time on each academic subject. if your son or daughter has no studying to do, he/she should read a book.
Working together, we need to stress to our young people that study, in contrast to specified homework, includes (but is not limited to):
- Rewriting classroom lecture notes or lab reports.
- Checking lecture notes while they are still fresh in a student's mind; in terms of understanding material, one hour spent as soon after lecture as posible is worth several hours a few days later.
- Outlining an English or Science chapter to use to review for a quiz or chapter test.
- Rethinking, e.g., using foreign language vocabulary words by making up sentences and transcribing them in the foreign language.
- Reviewing, e.g., reviewing theorems in geometry so one knows them verbatim and can apply them to problems not previously assigned.
- Getting a good night's sleep before a test -- no cramming! Research indicates that sleep aids in "sealing in" information.
