Homework made simple: tips, tools and solutions for stress-free homework.

Ann Dolin

Dolin, with over 20 years experience as a teacher, has written about the issue of homework problems from early learning to secondary school challenges about homework. She identifies elements of commonly caused homework problem issues and gives suggestions about six study skills that will help improve a student's approach to homework. The six study skills she mentions include many aspects of what a teacher-librarian does instinctively--like problem-solving approaches to issues surrounding note-taking. This book is aimed at parents, but there is much to be gained by reading about some of these intervention strategies and determining how to best approach them in a school library setting. The interventions suggested in this book are ones that fit well with many school library program approaches to learning. (Advantage Books, 2010. 303 pp. $14.95. 978-0-9714609-8-0.)

Bottom line: Used with Kuhlthau's understanding of student emotional responses to research, this book breaks down variables about student learning hesitancy and gives suggestions for how to better work with students in a variety of learning environments. Recommended. --Elizabeth "Betty' Marcoux
