Home Tasks / Homework

Home tasks refer to tasks assigned to students by their teachers to be completed mostly outside of class. The basic objectives of assigning homework to students are to increase the knowledge and improve the abilities and skills of the students. Homework may be designed to
  • Reinforce what students have already learned
  • Prepare them for upcoming (or complex or difficult) lessons,
  • Extend what they know by having them apply it to new situations.
  • Integrate their abilities by applying many different skills to a single task.

Homework also provides an opportunity for parents to participate in their child's education.

Parental homework strategies
Students generally benefit when their parents become involved in the homework process. However, too much parental involvement can prevent the positive effects of homework.
  • Setting a regular time to do homework and designating a specific place for doing homework helps keep the student well-focused on his or her studies.
  • A flat surface, good lighting, school supplies (pens, pencils, paper, scissors, glue, eraser, ruler, etc.) and a dictionary are often essential.
  • Independent learning is encouraged and improved by providing guidance (such as explaining how to look up information or find a word in a dictionary) rather than merely providing the answers to the child's homework-related questions.
  • Having one's child read out loud allows the parent to provide corrections and help the student learn how to read better.
  • When parents do "homework" of their own at the same time as their children, it sets a good example and helps to foster a good attitude toward learning.

A child's viewpoint about Homework
Homework! Oh, homework! I hate you, you stink! I wish I could wash you away in the sink, if only a bomb would explode you to bits. Homework! Oh, homework! You're giving me fits. I'd rather take baths

With a man-eating shark, Or wrestle a lion Alone in the dark, Eat spinach and live, Pet ten porcupines, Then tackle the homework My teacher assigns.

Homework! Oh, homework! You're last on my list, I simply can't see, why you even exist, If you disappeared It would tickle me pink, Homework! Oh, homework! I hate you, you stink!
