### HOW MUCH HOMEWORK

IS ENOUGH?

SUCCESS

- Depends on establishing effective patterns
- Rarely does a late last minute big effort produce results in either homework or study
- Consistency and regularity.

ONLY SO MUCH TIME

- Family
- Relationships
- Sport
- Jobs
- Friends

Patterns involving these factors already exist when students start Year 11

- To succeed students need to break those patterns to find the time they need.

The pattern of application needs to be set early

- The mind and body both get used to the expectation of homework and study
- Students need time to work out what works best for them particularly with study.

HOMEWORK AND STUDY

- Are different things
- Different focus at different times.

HOMEWORK

- Teacher directed

- Assessment tasks

- Follow up from class work

- Research/ reading prior to class work

STUDY

- is generally student directed although teachers often give guidance about what and how to study
- Is a constant process of revision but is more concentrated near major exam times when less homework is given.
- If students are used to doing homework then that time can be transferred to study as required

HOW MUCH TIME?

- Different patterns of study demand different efforts
- Even less demanding patterns need 10 hours a week at least
- More demanding patterns 20 hours or more a week.

That last slide was serious………………..if your son or daughter isn’t working consistently they are unlikely to achieve their best and

- Unlikely to change when the reach Year 12.

GENERAL GUIDELINES

- Spot they can be uninterrupted
- Music works for some but not all students
- An hour without a break is generally as long as students can focus
- Short breaks can revitalize as can changing topics eg English to Maths.

VISUAL CUES

- Most of our students are strong visually so use the strength
- Formulas , quotes, key words should be up in prominent positions.
- Repetition helps get things into long term memory which is crucial

STUDY IS NOT THE SAME FOR EVERYONE

- Students need to find what works best
- ‘reading over’ is generally the least effective
- Teaching someone else is generally the most effective
