This workshop generates great feedback from participants. Learners return home empowered with 20 tips for homework helpers, 15 ways to do better in science and math, and full of ideas on motivating reluctant readers/ students. Participants will view two excellent videos entitled Homework! No Way! and the School Success Tool Kit. Parent-Teacher conferences will be practiced in pairs and many practical ideas shared on how to strengthen the home-school partnership.
Reasonable TV viewing and other contributing factors to promoting success at reading will help parents to make wise choices with their children in foster care. Participants especially appreciate skills in how to help their children organize a study space, time and papers so that completed work actually gets back to school! (Attention can be given, if time permits, to helping the ADHD child and children with learning disabilities or developmental lags.) Effective use of rewards, praise and structure to promote good study habits will also be discussed.
