Rhms Homework Hotline

1. Set goals for yourself. They don't have to be big ones, in fact, the smaller the better. These are called SMART goals.  S.M.A.R.T. stands for Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely (we will discuss these in class the first week or so of school.)  Start by setting goals you know you can attain easily. For instance, a goal such as getting straight A's on your next report card would be nice, but it is a major goal. An easier one would be taking a page of notes for your report on inuksuks.

2. Set a schedule for studying and write it down. Why write it down? Something about the written word makes it harder to ignore. Once you've written that you'll do it, it’s harder to not do it.

3. Arrange to get together with a friend to do homework. Meet a study buddy to work through material you are both studying. They're counting on you as much as you're counting on them, so you can't let them down. Also, use your resources to connect with friends when you have questions.  A great place to start from home - the class Edmodo account.

4. Do the homework you dislike the most first. Also, if there is homework you find most difficult, do it first while your mind is still fresh. However, if you have a number of small assignments and one major assignment to work on, doing the small ones first will make it seem like you are making progress quicker.

5.  Yes!  I am saying this again... Ask for help from your parents. If you don't ask, they will assume you either don't need help or don't want help.

6. Use rewards to mark your progress. You could "allow" yourself to go to a movie with a friend on Friday night if you get your History project completed by then, or you could take a snack break once you get the first thirty Math questions completed.

7. Think positive. Moaning about how many upcoming tests or projects you have or how hard it is learn to speak Spanish won't get your homework done. Likewise, focus on what you are doing well (the speech you did so impressively on the U.S. flag) rather than on what is impeding your progress (the math teacher you don't like).

8. Find a way to turn your homework assignments into something that interests you. If you have a choice of topics, choose something you've always wanted to learn about. IYou will hear Mrs. Conner tell you ALL THE TIME - we write best about what we know.  Well, the same idea stands to be true for anything.  We do better when we are passionate about our topics.  If you have to do geometry homework, think about how you could use it when you want to become an interior designer. If you are researching Russia and your interest is in wildlife, find out what species you would find there (would you believe about 65% of the world's brown bears?).  Get it?  If you feel uninspired... thing BIG and you will surely find something about it that inspires you! 
Some of these tips could work for you. Try them out. 
It's time to get motivated and STAY MOTIVATED.
You are the creator of your own destiny!!
Life is an echo... what you put into, it you get back!
You only get out what you put in so put in 150% all of the time!!

Homework Hotline

Homework Hotline will begin Monday, September 18, 2017

Our Homework Hotline is designed to help students in case they are absent or they forgot to write down the assignment for class in their student planner.  Please note that the most update to date information is found with the teacher, as the plans may change if the lessons need to be adjusted.

To access the information you can click on one of the 3 links below.  This will bring up a Calendar.  Click on the date that you would like the assignments for and a spreadsheet with all of the teacher names will open up for you.  Some of the assignments listed have a small paperclip icon next to them.  That means you can download the instructions/worksheet,…
