This is a parent friendly booklet that guides parents through the process of helping their student successfully complete homework.
It should be printed and copied back to back, then folded in half. The title belongs on the front page.
It begins with a short note to parents-
I believe that well defined, purposeful homework is an important
aspect of studentÃƒÂ¢Ã¯Â¿Â½Ã¯Â¿Â½s academic growth and should be incorporated as a vital part of the educational program.....
This booklet goes on to cover the following:
-What Parents Can Expect
-The academic Purpose of Homework
Each section has a complete explanation. There is also a spot for the teacher to share their contact information (the school's phone number and the teacher's district email address).
I also refer parents to the student's HOMEWORK BOX and supply list (these are my free downloads, check them out).
I think that providing parents with information about homework up front, and at the beginning of the year, helps to avoid unnecessary frustration for all involved.
