5 Common Homework Challenges: How To Deal With Them
Students are met on a daily basis with homework challenges. These challenges can stem from not having paid attention during the school day and therefore retaining nothing for study time or not understanding the material no matter how much they pay attention. The struggle for students ranges in capacity between each individual, but they can be overcome in the following ways:
- - Didn’t pay attention? Find a website!
- - Can’t grasp the concepts? Ask a tutor!
- - Left your textbook in school? Call a friend!
- - Is the material too difficult? Stay after school!
- - Don’t want to put in the work? Consider your future!
Didn’t pay attention? Find a website!
If a student did not pay attention to a topic in class, the simple, yet not fully supportive, answer is to simply type it into a search bar online. Many websites exist with answers to every day material and even the higher end school concepts. This allows students to take a shortcut to receiving help from the instructor or a tutor.
Can’t grasp the concepts? Ask a tutor!
Tutors are usually students in the same age group that have mastered the materials and can help student’s that may be struggling. In order for a tutoring session to be productive, both parties must be active listeners and active speakers in order to ensure that the material is being stored in the long term memory of both tutor and fellow student. Since many people learn from instructing others, this is also a good way for the tutor to remember the material for the course.
Left your textbook in school? Call a friend!
If a student leaves behind their textbook, they should simply contact one of their friends. A friend should be able to help walk the student through the homework assignment and therefore they can both help each other answer the questions in a team effort.
Is the material too difficult? Stay after school!
Although most students want to go home at the end of a rough day of school, if they do not understand the material they should stay behind for extra help. The only way to get better at course material is by putting in the effort themselves.
Don’t want to put in the work? Consider your future!
Persons that do better in school and have a strong work ethic are more likely to receive lucrative job offers. Students should not make their life goal to be the head fry cook at a fast food restaurant.
