Structure, by Bill Rusin

It is important that children have structure in their learning habits at home. Using a calendar or record book that is in a prominent position to record assignments and due dates helps keep track of the work for both children and their parents. Some steps that will help complete assignments might include:

  • Selecting a topic
  • Planning research and suggesting places where books and other materials might be found
  • Figuring out what questions need to be answered
  • Drafting an outline
  • Planning a rough draft of the assignment
  • Revising and completing the final draft

Planning how much time needs to be spent on each part is also a useful thing to do.
