Personal Homework Plan

We all have different strengths and struggles. I want you to bring your strengths and your struggles with you to this class every day. This class is going to be exciting and you are going to have the best school year you have ever had. The purpose of this assignment is for you to think about and communicate some things that you need to work on or remember to have the best year ever.

In five complete sentences, you will answer any or all of these five questions.

- What do you need to say to yourself to keep going if the homework is hard?
- Who is a person you can talk to for help with your homework?
- What will you do if you are not sure what the homework is?
- What are some things that distract you from finishing your homework and what will you do so those things don’t get in your way?
- Where will you do your homework?
- When will you complete your homework?
- How will you know that you have done your best on the homework?
- How will you make sure you have the tools you need to complete your homework?
- What plan will you make to be sure that your homework is with you at the beginning of class and that you turn it in by the homework deadline?
