Homework help for parents, teachers

Homework is a common struggle between many parents and their students. Many students feel overwhelmed by the amount of homework and time spent on homework.

When homework isn’t completed, teachers spend more time reviewing what should have been reinforced at home instead of teaching new material.

Students are more likely to finish homework when they feel they have the support from both their parents and teachers, but getting students motivated can be hard for many parents and teachers, which is why Successful Study Skills 4 Students (S4) has launched Homework Helpers to help parents and teachers with their students’ homework challenges.

Parents and teachers are encouraged to post comments and questions on S4’s Facebook page, which is designed to give real advice and tips from S4 teachers and parents who are fighting the same homework challenges.

The S4 program is designed to bolster academic confidence, motivation and preparation as academic workload and expectations increase rise. Skills taught include:

“We are excited to launch Homework Helpers, as we know it will support many parents in their efforts to help their students’ with homework,” said S4 President Michelle Sagalyn.

“Homework Helpers will be a forum for both parents and teachers to come together and support and make homework time less stressful. It is proven that students that do their homework have greater academic success.”

Trackside Teen Center hosted sessions of the S4 program for middle and high school students back in October.
