Meaningful homework helps students to succeed in school and learn helpful study habits. Homework gives students a chance to practice what they have learned in school and to deepen their understanding of what is taught. Homework also provides an opportunity for students to share what they are learning with their parents/guardians. In general, students should average the following amount of time on homework:
6th grade - 45 minutes, four times per week
7th grade - 1 hour, four times per week
8th grade - 1 hour and 15 minutes, four times per week
Long-term assignments such as research papers, special projects, and exceeds assignments may add to these amounts.
