Students should not spend more than 90 minutes per night on homework. The time should be budgeted in the following manner:
These are given the night before they are due. This explains the name "long term." It is a long-term commitment to time that begins at 9:30 PM and ends at 11:50 PM - or later. It is important that the whole family is involved in the project. It is imperative that at least one family member race to Walmart for posterboard, and that at least one family member end up in tears (does not have to be the student).
One parent needs to stay up and complete the project. The other parent needs to call the school and leave a message that the student is out sick.
It is not necessary to have the student's name on the assignment.
