Help, we’ve got homework
Projects and practice and quizzes, oh my!
As we enter the heart of the school year, homework issues may be taking centre stage in homes across the province. Before engaging in a homework battle with your child, it may help to a) remember that it’s their homework – not yours, and b) arm yourself with a few facts. Our homework tip sheet addresses some of parents’ most common concerns, and provides tips to support your child.
There is also free homework help available in the community and online. The Independent Learning Centre has a free online math tutoring service, led by certified teachers, for students in grades 7–10. Many schools, libraries, and community centres have homework clubs, and high schools often have peer tutors available to help.
So, before booking expensive tutoring sessions, find out about the free services available in your community.
