Study methods

Activity 1

To have a discussion on the importance of homework [lo 3.6]

Have a brainstorming session on the value of homework.

A short debate “for” and “against” homework may follow on or replace this activity.

Activity 2

To complete a questionnaire on homework [lo 3.6]

Individual assignment

Complete the questionnaire by marking the appropriate squares. Be absolutely honest. Then work out your personal score:

  1. Do you write down your homework carefully in class?
  1. Do you make sure that you have packed all your books for the following school day?
  1. Do you plan how much time you are going to spend on each assignment before you start your homework?

  1. Do you have a problem to get started?
  1. Do you watch TV while you do your homework?
  1. Do you allow all kinds of things to distract you while you are busy doing homework?

  1. Do you check your work before handing it in?
  1. Do you ask somebody to test your knowledge after having studied for a test?

What does your personal mark mean?

19-24

You do your homework conscientiously and follow a sound study program. You are well organised. You read your homework assignments attentively and do not waste time by searching for books and other articles. As you plan your time for homework well, you should have enough time to relax and enjoy other activities. If you do not have enough free time, your homework probably takes up too much of your time. Discuss this with your parents or teacher and let them help you to adjust your homework program.

13-18

You follow the correct methods for completing your homework successfully most of the time, but definitely not all the time. You have to plan your homework time better. Choose better times for doing homework. In this way you will perform better at school and have more quality time for recreation.

Have a good look at those questions on which you have answered “sometimes”, and think about changing them to “often” in future.

0-12

You probably think homework is not important and make no effort to plan your program. You will have to work hard to change your habits. You will also have to see that your attitude towards schoolwork improves. Ask help and guidance from your parents or teacher.
