Homework is part of the learning process, helping to teach self-discipline, responsibility, and time-management. It also helps to reinforce and prepare students for what they are learning in the classroom. Woodlawn faculty members work together as a team to ensure that several assignments or projects are not all due at the same time. However, we do expect students to manage their time in order to turn in each assignment when due.
At Woodlawn, homework is meant to reinforce what is learned in the classroom. The work load may ebb and flow during the trimester, but no student should spend several hours on any one subject. If you find your child is spending too many hours in a subject, please contact the teacher directly in order discuss strategies to help the student better manage their work load. We hope parents take an interest in what their child is learning in school and act as a resource and guide as they help students search out answers but not provide the answers. The student is ultimately responsible for his or her own homework and must be able to understand and support their answers. We expect all work to be authentic and students to uphold the honor code in all of their work.
