Ask your teen to explain the answers to these science questions
One of the best ways to learn something is to try to explain it to someone else. Instead of just looking over your teen's science homework, have him teach it to you. In the process, he should try to answer questions such as: What is the main idea? What makes it useful? Do I agree with it? Can I demonstrate how it works? Why do my teachers want me to learn this? What do I already know that is related to this idea?
Organized students can see the big picture
How do some students manage to play three sports, volunteer and still make the honor roll? Organization! For example, writing down all her assignments and commitments in a planner can help your teen see the big picture: "Yikes, next week I have a math test and an English paper due on Thursday, and I'm volunteering Wednesday night!" She'll also be able to see the time she has between now and Tuesday to do the work.
Enlist support if your teen is facing new struggles
It's not uncommon for students who did well in elementary school to struggle in middle and high school. This can be due to a wide variety of factors, including vision problems and learning disabilities. If you are concerned about your teen's learning, ask yourself what changes you've noticed and when they started. Discuss your concerns with her teachers, school counselor and doctor. Work together to get your teen back on track.
