Keeping long-term assignments in focus
Most students focus on the homework that is due the next day to the detriment of the bigger assignments due down the road. And since “out of sight” often equals “out of mind” for many students, it’s important to find a way to keep those assignments in focus. One way to do this: create a monthly calendar that tracks papers, extended readings, exams and projects and make checking this calendar part of your child’s daily homework routine. Getting it down on paper and looking at it daily will help ensure your child doesn’t lose sight of his longer-term assignments.
