An Examination of Latino Students' Homework Routines
Martinez, Sylvia
Journal of Latinos and Education, v10 n4 p354-368 2011
Homework appears to be positively associated with better student outcomes. Although some researchers have explored the connection between time spent on homework and minority student achievement, few have examined the homework routines of Latino youth. Interviews with Latino high school students show that they have some difficulty completing daily homework assignments. Some of the reasons for not completing homework assignments include lack of motivation, problems with time management, and feeling overwhelmed with the amount of homework assigned. The problem of not completing homework assignments is exacerbated by the fact that few Latino students can turn to their parents for help. (Contains 1 footnote.)
