Intner, Carol F.
ALA Editions
Children's and young adult librarians are crucial links to effective learning for students. This straightforward handbook is filled with nuts-and-bolts advice on the best ways to help young people with their homework, no matter what the assignment. Carol F. Intner, a certified English teacher and experienced tutor, concentrates on the practical, covering: (1) How students' different learning styles and current technology inform the homework process; (2) Staff training and community outreach; and (3) Options for working more closely with both students and teachers. From planning a customized homework-help agenda to demonstrating how to help students successfully use their technological savvy in ways not necessarily possible at home, this book presents a no-nonsense, comprehensive approach to giving students the assistance they need. Two appendices, a preface, and an index are included.
