Teaching Kids to Complete Their Homework Independently (Teaching Tip #99)

Written by

In this Teaching Tip I provide a link to a short YouTube video I created. The video features some ideas that you can use to help kids complete their homework more independently. When children need help with their homework, we don’t want to provide too much assistance because we may rob them of opportunities to think and grow. We also don’t want to provide too little assistance because children may become frustrated and shut down. The key is to find a balance. Give these ideas a try in class with your students or at home with your children.

A few months ago I officially re-launched my YouTube page as the “Teaching Kids” channel and posted my first new video of the school year entitled "Teaching Kids How to Get Back into 'School Mode.' " Each of my new “Teaching Kids” videos will feature 1-2 minute tips for educators and parents and will address a wide variety of topics that focus on teaching the whole child, including academics, character, and health.

If you are interested in being notified anytime I upload a new video, please add yourself as a subscriber to my channel. If you have any suggestions or requests for new videos, please feel free to contact me.
