One of my favorite parenting gurus says “homework” is the most common problem topic parents send him – thousands upon thousands of questions from parents! You can be sure that it is a big issue with teachers, too.
Most homework issues fall into one of a dozen common categories. This enhanced checklist breaks down the categories, gives typical excuses and then presents reflective responses to guide a teacher’s thinking to troubleshoot what might REALLY be behind the excuses. It is a guide to thinking beyond what students say and looking for what they actually may mean with best practice ideas to fix the problem.
