If you really want your students to love doing homework, create group homework assignments, or connect them with a study buddy to complete the task together.
Embrace the use of new technologies by giving students the opportunity to do their homework online.
For example, if students are used to writing out the definitions for new words, mix it up by having students create a symbolic representation of the word instead.
Give homework assignments that make learning personal.
The concept of a study buddy isn’t something new, it’s actually been around for a very long time.
There is an abundance of research that proves group assignments can be highly effective.
While some children are natural overachievers who enjoy school and relish in homework time, many children will rebel.
And usually, once your child has it in their mind that they don't want to do something, it can be difficult to convince them otherwise.
The National PTA recommends 10-20 minutes of homework starting in 1st grade, then add 10 minutes for every grade thereafter, capping at 120 minutes for a student in 12th grade.
It’s going to be very tough to get a senior in high school to enjoy 120 minutes of homework.
