ToL 013: Managing the Homework Mountain
One of the biggest challenges that pupils must manage as part of their educational journey is not what happens in the classroom, but what they must carry away with them at the end of each day. Homework! It can be a source of tension in the family home, a stressor on top of an already challenging day for young people and a barb for teachers, trying to develop a good working relationship with their classes.
In this episode we will be taking a look at the habits and strategies that pupils can use to make sure they stay on top of their workload and use homework as a launching pad for success, rather than a barrier to achieving their academic potential.
For a practical way to organise and manage homework load, while also allowing time for extra-curricular activities, and family life, head here for a video and downloadable planner sheet.
