1. Be responsible and take ownership of your homework by creating a study/assignment completion plan.
2. Designate a consistent time and place to do your homework each day. Time management is key. Make an attempt to do homework around the same time every evening - a relatively quiet place is best.
3. Concentrate and take pride in your homework. While doing your homework, think deeply about what you are studying. Think about how homework assignments are connected to the class work. Your major focus should be on quality completion of assignments, not rushing through the work to “get it over with”.
4. If there are parts of your homework that you need help with ASK for help. Be sure to exhaust all resources (older sibling, parent, call a classmate/friend, Internet). Be accountable and resourceful in your attempt to remedy the problem.
