Without an educator's background to rely upon, and with so much discussion surrounding the amount of homework children are given today, parents are often left in the dark when it comes to understanding their child's learning process. They are even more dumbfounded when it comes to engaging their child in effective study strategies. In easy to understand parenting terms, Home Sweet Homework gives struggling parents practical tools that will produce winning grades.
Written specifically for parents of children in grades K-12, Lockett tackles all the typical homework dilemmas, including: whether or not a child should be allowed to study with friends; what to do when a child says they have no homework; and how to deal with too much homework and too little time. Also, Lockett offers specific learning strategies that will help children in overall performance and test taking, along with tools for dealing with failure and learning frustrations.
The founder and director of SCORE, a program validated by the United Sate Department of Education for effectiveness in improving the performance of high-risk youth, Sharon Marshall Lockett has over thirty years experience in public education. She received her Master of Science in Educational Administration at California State University, Fullerton.
