Noting that students' homework provides an opportunity for families and schools to work together to help students be successful in school, this booklet, designed for parents, offers suggestions for ways parents can use homework to become more involved with their child's education. The booklet discusses reasons for assigning homework, including helping students learn better and faster, informing children of their school's high expectations, and helping students develop self-discipline and responsibility. The bulk of the booklet discusses ways parents can support their child's homework: (1) make homework a priority; (2) show interest; (3) know the teacher's homework policy; (4) help your child set aside studying time; (5) work with your child to pick a study spot; (6) eliminate distractions; (7) help your child keep track of each day's assignments; (8) check your child's finished homework; (9) help your child develop a study plan; (10) teach your child to ask questions while studying; (11) make sure your child understands assignments; (12) help your child with time management; (13) learn how your child learns; (14) help your child visualize success; (15) emphasize the importance of hard work; (16) help your child study for tests; (17) give honest praise; (18) help your child work through confusion; and (19) remember whose homework it is. Finally, the booklet discusses what parents can do if their child is having problems, when they no longer understand their child's homework, and when homework involves a computer and the parents do not own one.

Is homework an essential component of rigorous schooling or a harmful practice that alienates and discourages a significant number of students? The debate over homework has gone on for decades, but schools and families have changed in many ways, and, as author Cathy Vatterott notes, "There's a growing suspicion that something is wrong with homework." Rethinking Homework: Best Practices That Support Diverse Needs examines the role homework has played in the culture of schooling over the years; how such factors as family life, the media, and the "balance movement" have affected the homework controversy; and what research--and educators' common sense--tells us about the effects of homework on student learning. The best way to address the pro- and anti-homework controversy is not to eliminate homework. Instead, the author urges educators to replace the "old paradigm" (characterized by longstanding cultural beliefs, moralistic views, the puritan work ethic, and behaviorist philosophy) with a "new paradigm" based on the following elements: * Designing quality homework tasks; * Differentiating homework tasks; * Deemphasizing grading of homework; * Improving homework completion; and * Implementing homework strategies and support programs. Numerous examples from teachers and schools that have revised their practices and policies for homework illustrate the new paradigm in action. The end product is homework that works--for all students, at all levels.

A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it's like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I've done it... Amy Chua's daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful, they had perfect school marks and exceptional musical abilities. The Chinese-parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when you do not tolerate disobedience and are confronted by a screaming child who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano? Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it's about a bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old. Witty, entertaining and provocative, this is a unique and important book that will transform your perspective of parenting forever.
