Around these parts, date night is almost unheard of. It's not because we don't have the time because we do. However, most of our time is in these 30 minute increments and the rest...
Get Schooled: Homework Help Desk
I have three kids in school in various grades and at one time or another they all seem to need help with homework. When they were younger, this really wasn't a big deal. However now, with the older kids, homework is a little harder and mom (or dad) isn't always able to help. In fact, sometimes that homework looks like another language.
Now with the The Common Core State Standards, I really want my children to be prepared for their futures and that means we need a little extra help. The college- and career-ready standards are being implemented across the country.
With these Common Core State Standards, children are learning new concepts and strategies in the classroom. That means parents are learning them too. The Homework Help Desk is here to help.
ABOUT THE HOMEWORK HELP DESK
This Homework Help Desk help parents learn strategies to help their children with homework through one-on-one chats with expert teachers, instructional videos and practice problems.
This is a tool that helps parents better help their children and simplify the sometimes confusing and complex homework help resources available to families online.
ABOUT GET SCHOOLED
Get Schooled is a national non-profit founded on the belief that students themselves have the power to improve their future if given the right information and motivation. They leverage the key influences in teens' lives to directly motivate them to stay committed to graduating from high school and going on to college.
One of Get Schooled's main projects in 2016 is the Homework Help Desk: a new website focused on helping your 7-12 graders with their challenging homework in math, science, English (and the parents too!)
Get Schooled worked with parents and teachers to identify the new concepts in Math and English Language Arts (ELA) that parents are struggling with the most. So now you can search by grade or by topic, browse through instructional videos or get one-on-one help from a trained teacher. The goal of Get Schooled and the Homework Help Desk is to equip you with the knowledge and support you need to help your children with their homework assignments.
