**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**THE MOST IMPORTANT THING**• THE STATEMENT “ I HAVE NO HOMEWORK” IS NEVER TRUE
