Frequently forgetting to turn in assignments

  • Establish a routine to turn in homework. Have student place assignments in the "in" basket as they enter the classroom.

  • Use a weekly syllabus when assigning homework. Send a copy to the families each week, and post one in the classroom.

  • Maintain a homework routine. Keep homework routines simple and manageable.

  • Establish an organizational system with the student. Provide assistance until the student can manage the system.

  • Gradually phase out the support as the student becomes more independently organized.
