This is a homework assignment I give out on the first day of class. Basically it involves the parent or guardian writing a letter about their son or daughter. I send each student home with this sheet and give them a due date. It is amazing the letters I get back from parents. In the high school setting I can't always see the counselors to get some insight on all of my students and sometimes the counselors may not be familiar enough with them either. This is an easy way to get to know each student and find out important information. Often the parents thank me for giving them homework! Try it out!
