How to Help Your Student Be Academically Successful at South Valley Junior High
- Check your student’s daily agenda/calendar. Help your student get into the habit of recording homework assignments and upcoming quiz/test dates. Once assignments have been completed crossing off items will help students feel a sense of accomplishment.
- Organize homework assignments. Before beginning a homework session, encourage your student to number the assignments in the order in which they are to be completed. Students should start with one that’s not too long or difficult but avoid saving the longest or hardest assignments for last.
- Check over homework assignments. Take time to review your student’s homework with them, but make sure you are not doing it for them. Point out mistakes and help correct them. Being familiar with their work will help you identify areas of strength and weakness.
