What teachers are sending home for homework?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

If our child are having trouble with some type of work in class and they are sending it home as homework, if they are not understanding it, how are we to know what to do and how to help them. We have no clue on what being taught that day or week if again our children can't explain it to us because their not getting it, what do they fail it and the class continues on to the next chapter without them.... leaving them behind not knowing the work. They are moving way to fast, to many kids in one class and not enough teachers to go around, meaning who is taking the time out for the ones that are not understanding the work?

This one also depends. There are some things that only practice will help (eg. math), and homework is about reinforcing that practice. However, as a teacher myself, I frequently offer additional tutoring during some recess and lunch breaks for students having issues and I also frequent our homework club after school to help any of my students who turn up. If your child is not understanding something, they need to become pro-active and ask the teacher if there is a time they can get additional assistance with their work.
