How to do Middle School Homework Effectively

Once you have started middle school, you can see that the homework that you are given is harder and takes more time to do than in elementary school.  Although the subjects are hard it doesn’t mean that it should take all night to complete all of your homework.  There are some simple things that you can do to get your middle school homework done faster and more effectively. 

How to Get Your Homework Done More Effectively

  • The first thing you need to do before you start your homework is to get all the things that you will need while you are doing it.  This can include a paper, pencils, pens, books, or even a drink and snack.  This will help you to not walk away from the task at hand. 
  • Once you have all the necessary items to do your work, it’s time to get rid of all the distractions.  This means turning off the television, your cell phone, and laptop unless it is needed for the assignment.  You should also be sitting at the kitchen table while doing your homework.  Doing it there gives you fewer distractions because if you do it in your room, you could wonder and not get your work done. 
  • To establish a routine of doing your homework, do your homework the same time and place every day.  Making a routine out of your homework will make the process go faster and keep you from putting it off every day.
  • You don’t want to study for too long because if you study for too long you won’t remember most of the stuff that you are trying to learn.  The ten-minute rule is a good one to use for this; it is ten minutes for each grade level that the student is studying.  That means if you are in seventh grade, you should study for seventy minutes. After that you should take a break for a while and then come back to it. 
  • If you are having trouble with your homework, don’t be afraid to ask your parents for help.  Asking for help is not a bad thing and if you are having trouble with a subject, they can help you or at least find someone that can help you. 
  • If you are having a lot of trouble doing your homework, you might want to ask your teacher for help.  You might not understand the material or you might have a learning disability that is preventing you from doing your homework fast.
