This explanation of our homework policy is designed to help you understand the importance and value of your child's homework. Homework, as we use the term, refers to any assignment given by a teacher that utilizes out-of-class time. Homework is given for the purpose of improving a student's ability to learn. A homework assignment will reinforce what has been taught in class; it may be reading to prepare a student for class discussion or reinforce what has already been covered in discussion. Studying for a test is another kind of typical homework assignment. This can be accomplished by not only reviewing reading assignments but also by studying class notes, chapter questions and outlines, making and using flash cards, and by reviewing previous quizzes and tests. Homework may come in the form of oral review...memorization followed by recitation. Answering questions and/or problem solving and completing class projects are forms of homework. Media (newspaper, radios and television programs, magazines) may be used as part of the homework picture. These are a few of the different kinds of homework assignments Revere students may be asked to do. All homework is expected to be completed and turned in on time. If a student is absent, it is his/her responsibility to obtain and complete missed assignments within a period of time specified by the teacher. If you know your child will be absent for a week or more, a Home Assignment Sheet may be obtained from the Counseling Office. Each teacher will fill in the Assignment Sheet so your child can keep up with the progress of the class. Please allow 24 hours for a teacher to complete this form.

Home study assignments are an integral part of the courses taken by the Paul Revere students. Parents can help with the development of proper home study habits. They can take a personal interest in their child's work. They can aid their son or daughter in planning a home study program as well as provide materials and a suitable place to study. Teachers make the assignment needed on the basis of the schedule given below. Times scheduled should be considered as average time for the average student. Weekend homework may be assigned at the discretion of the teacher.
