HOMEWORK AND TEST HELP
Students who are a part of the Academic Skills Development program receive helpful information, however, we do not guarantee a high G.P.A. Preparing for tests, completing homework each night, asking for assistance from teachers, turning in completed projects on time, and reviewing classwork each day is essential to doing well in school. Planners must be used in order to keep students organized. We suggest that students and their parents check the on-line test calendar each weekend and record their upcoming test and project dates in their planner and highlight the dates. They also need to write down all of their homework assignments from their teachers' websites. Each teacher posts homework differently on his or her website, so check with the teacher on how to access the postings.
Students should check with the teachers for when extra help is offered. Most of our teachers offer regular help or "help on demand" when asked by a student, either before or after school. Also, many teachers offer study sessions before tests.
*studying for tests-Students need to start studying for the next test in a subject the very night they take a test. For example, if Ms. Kingen gives a test on Chapter 10 on Wednesday, Susie or Tommy needs to take the history book home on Wednesday night and read a reasonable part of Chapter 11 on Wednesday night, or read a section and complete the questions.
Students need to seek help for tests, projects, and papers beginning when the assignment is given, not the day or two before it is due. Teachers give ample opportunity for students to prepare for projects, exams and tests. Students have the opportunity to come to Mrs. Mathewson, Ms. Love, and most importantly the academic teacher for specific and detailed help. However, we are unable to help students when they come in at the last minute.
