Overview

Finally, here is a comprehensive, down-to-earth plan to turn homework from drudgery into a genuine learning experience for both parent and child, and make even the most resistant child interested—even enthusiastic—about their schoolwork. Friendly and full of anecdotes from the authors’ own child development practice, Hassle-Free Homework includes:

The Six Week Plan: A guide to developing learning skills, including organization, motivation, memory, and concentration.

Homework Hotspots: Concrete tips for helping children with specific subjects, like math, science, spelling, and other problems areas.

Homework Helpers: Show how physical activity, music, visual arts, and the home computer can be homework motivators, and list recommended educational computer programs and books.
 
“Through well-constructed and constructive approaches, the Clarks show that homework can represent an opportunity rather than a burden.”—Howard Gardner, Harvard University, Graduate School of Education

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
To many parents, homework time is the most stressful part of the day. Youngsters will claim they can't do it, don't want to do it, haven't any, etc. This book is designed to help parents (and their children) with a unique plan from the Human Development Clinic in Washington, D.C. It teaches organizational and management skills. The beginning chapter describes mind-mapping, a technique for brain-storming, organizing, planning, and more. Next, a six-week plan is carefully explained; how much homework to expect, how to plan projects, make schedules, keep a homework journal, recognize a learning style. The goal is to make the child take charge of her or his own learning in a positive, motivated way. There is a section on parent-teacher relationships. A good purchase for parents and libraries serving them.-- Annette V. Janes, Hamilton Lib., Mass.
