Homework tips

  • Listen carefully when your homework is being set. Make sure you understand what you have to do and when it has to be handed in.
  • Allow yourself plenty of time - don't leave your homework until the last minute. If you leave it too late, you might not be able to find all the information you need.
  • Before you start, spend some time thinking about the subject. What do you already know? What information will you need? Will you need pictures?
  • Work out what resources you might need to use - books, websites, magazines, newspapers etc.
  • Look carefully at the information you find. Is it reliable and accurate? Is it up to date?
  • Don't just copy information from books or websites! You must always explain and write things in your own words.
