Welcome to episode 32 of BrainTree Podcast – “Helping Students Tackle Assignments (Part 1)”

In this episode Prue and Rocky discuss how you can encourage students to tackle their assignments in the right way and help them come up with reasons that motivate them to get started in a timely fashion.

Quotation for the episode: “Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant”– Robert Louis Stevenson

In this episode of BrainTree Podcast, Prue speaks about:

  • How you can get students starting their assignments.
  • Advice to give to students on how to approach assignments.
  • Effective internet research and prioritizing.
  • How peer sharing is useful for students.
  • Breaking the assignment down into steps to follow.
  • Helping students make a workable plan.

The aim is that parents and teachers will plant seeds to build skills. You could sit down with students and do this for them, but better to spend that little bit of time to teach them how to approach assignments effectively so that they can do it themselves!

Tune in whether you’re a parent, teacher or student who’s looking for a way to make the assignment process less stressful.
