Learning styles may vary

-A A +A
By Bernadette Lauritzen

As kids get back into the groove, it’s sometimes hard to gauge how happy they are to be back in school.

This week, we look at assets in the commitment to learning category, which are #22 and #23.

The school engagement assets find youth actively involved in their own learning. This is the season when you occasionally see some middle school students outside for part of their learning, collecting bugs for science.

The project takes the students out of the classroom and demonstrates a hands-on, real world application to education.

Today, with so much technology, it is refreshing to find students engaged in an old school method of data collection and an interesting twist to asset #23, homework.

Research finds that students do better when they have at least one hour of homework, every school day. 

As parents, we can assist the youth by finding out what things help them to get — or stay on — task.

While we may not view their situation the same way, they may do better when they have a space dedicated to doing homework.
