As the new school year is finally underway, for many students, of all ages, completing homework assignments can be a daunting task. Homework assignments can be a major source of frustration and anxiety which may cause students to "forget" their homework assignments on a regular basis, or just not do the assignment at all. This can negatively affect the student's overall school performance and lower their grades. To ease your child's homework frustration and to stay on top of assigned work while assisting your child in completing their assignments, this Homework Tracking Journal is very helpful. Each subject can be tracked on its own page, along with special notes, things to do and reminders. There is also a space for extra credit weekend work if that is something your student is inclined to do to boost their grades. The Make Time for Homework Tracking Journal can also serve to assist parents in identifying subjects their students may be struggling with in order to get extra help they need to alleviate the problem. For the younger child, parents can work with teachers to help younger children with filling in the homework assignments. For older, more advanced students, this journal can travel with them from class to class so they can immediately write down the homework assignments thus eliminating the "I forgot the homework assignment" excuse. If teachers hand out printed homework assignments, the sheets can be attached to the corresponding week/subject giving the student the opportunity to fill in the journal later and not worry about losing the assignment sheet. The Make Time for Homework Tracking Journal can help parents and students end the homework battles and foster a positive learning experience while boosting time management skills for completing homework assignments.
Adoption has been a politically charged subject since the Progressive Era, when it first became an established part of child welfare reform. InA Home for Every Child, Patricia Susan Hart looks at how, when, and why modern adoption practices became a part of child welfare policy.
The Washington Children's Home Society (now the Children's Home Society of Washington) was founded in 1896 to place children into adoptive and foster homes as a means of dealing with child abuse, neglect, and homelessness. Hart reveals why birth parents relinquished their children to the Society, how adoptive parents embraced these vulnerable family members, and how the children adjusted to their new homes among strangers.
Debates about nature versus nurture, fears about immigration, and anxieties about race and class informed child welfare policy during the Progressive Era. Hart sheds new light on that period of time and the social, cultural, and political factors that affected adopted children, their parents, and administrators of pioneering institutions like the Washington Children's Home Society.
