2. For Parents

What Parents Can Do To Help

  • Check the "What's Due" page to see what homework students need to complete and when the next major assessment task is due.
  • Ask your child to tell you about the text they're currently studying in class. What is the plot? What are the major characters like? How do they change throughout the text? What are the themes or messages of the text? It is useful for students to practice explaining these aspects of the novel. Encourage them to explain anything that is unclear.
  • If possible, read over students' homework. Encourage them to check spelling and grammar. Ask them to explain anything that is unclear.
  • Encourage students to write down any questions they have and bring them into class to ask their fellow students and their teacher.
