Homework Tips for Parents = Consejos para los padres sobre la tarea escola.
Department of Education, Washington, DC. Office of Intergovernmental and Interagency Affairs.
Homework has been a part of students' lives since the beginning of formal school in the United States; the push for increased homework has increased, fueled by rising academic standards. Noting that parents involved can have either a positive or a negative influence on the value of homework, this booklet, in both English and Spanish, offers suggestions to parents to enhance the effectiveness of children homework experience. The booklet first offers general homework tips, such as providing a suitable space for study and helping with time management. Specific tips are then offered for homework in reading, such as having the child read aloud, or asking what the child thinks will happen next in the story; and for homework in math, such as engaging frequently with the teacher to monitor math progress, and not teaching strategies or approaches that may conflict with ones the teacher is using. The guide concludes by highlighting the education reform principles of the No Child Left Behind Act. (HTH)
