A likely explanation is that Asian Americans have the highest educational levels of any racial group in the United States, which is a characteristic strongly associated with having broadband at home.Note: The author is currently a senior researcher at Pew Research Center.Since the dawn of the internet, there’s been much talk about the digital divide – the gap between those with access to the internet and those without. In recent years, policymakers and advocates have pushed to make it easier for low-income households with school-age children to have broadband, arguing that low-income students are at a disadvantage without online access in order to do school work these days.
Description: The Mathematics Standards of Learning identify essential academic content at each grade level for sequential learning.
The content of the mathematics standards supports the following five goals for students: becoming mathematical problem solvers, communicating mathematically, reasoning mathematically, making mathematical connections and using mathematical representations to model and interpret practical situations.
The study led to three conclusions: (1) families of middle school students can be involved in learning activities at home; (2) report card grades and attitudes improved when students conducted interactive homework with family members, and (3) families need more than homework activities to meet their goals for their children's learning and success.
This study collected three writing samples, attendance records, and report card grades from 683 students and surveyed 413 students and 218 parents about their experiences and attitudes.
The researchers used multiple regression analyses to statistically control for student's family background, school, grade level, attendance, prior report card grades, prior writing skills, and other variables in order to identify independent effects of TIPS and family involvement on students' writing skills, report card grades, and student and family attitudes toward TIPS.
It did not use a comparison group or measure the impact of homework and family involvement on classroom teaching.For families, homework can be a challenge, whether the issue is, content-based, time management, or fear, frustration or anxiety.Here are some resources that may help make tackling (or completing) homework a more positive experience.It links you with research-based information that you can use to connect schools, families, and communities.Annotation: The purpose of this study is to explore whether Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS) interactive homework process contributes to students' writing scores and report card grades over one school year, and how students and their families react to the TIPS process.With approximately 29 million households in America having children between the ages of 6 and 17, according to Pew Research Center analysis of U. Census Bureau’s American Community Survey data, this means that some 5 million households with school-age children do not have high-speed internet service at home.Low-income households – and especially black and Hispanic ones – make up a disproportionate share of that 5 million.Pew Research analysis of the Census data finds that the lowest-income households have the lowest home broadband subscription rates.Roughly one-third (31.4%) of households whose incomes fall below ,000 and with children ages 6 to 17 do not have a high-speed internet connection at home.Here are just of few of the personal life resources available to you: If you don’t have regular child care—or want to explore different provider options—Life Care can help you cut the hours involved in researching and securing dependable, quality care by prescreening a variety of child care options, including nannies and before- or after-school programs.And, you don’t have to scramble when your plans change.
