4. Homework Chart. To insure a good start on the year’s work, the student and parent should be aware of the homework assignments for each subject. Students are responsible for copying and completing these assignments neatly and carefully. For students in grade six, the policy is twenty minutes of homework per night in each subject. Homework is generally not given on weekends.
Long term assignments which require the student to budget his or her time over several nights are also given. If students do not do a portion of these assignments each day, the result will most likely be a sloppy project done at the last minute without any real benefit to the student. The skill of time management must be taught and teachers must be sure to include lessons regarding this important skill. This early meeting and discussion can help to clear up any misunderstandings about what is expected.
For the orientation program, two weekly charts must be completed by the student and signed by the parent and teacher. The charts list the date, subject, and nature of the assignment. After the orientation program, the use of an assignment pad is sufficient but for this unit it is recommended that the charts be completed. The assignment notebook should be kept as well. A student not completing homework is a problem which must be addressed immediately and the teacher should contact parents as soon as there is a problem in completing this objective.
