Helping Your Child with Homework
https://www2.ed.gov/parents/academic/help/homework/index.html
Homework has been part of students' lives since the beginning of formal schooling in the United States. It is important because it can improve children's thinking and memory. It can help them to develop positive study skills and habits that will serve them well throughout their lives. It can encourage them to use time well, to learn independently and to take responsibility for their work. But helping children with their homework benefits families as well. It can, for example, be a way for families to learn more about what their children are learning in school and an opportunity for them to communicate both with their children and with teachers and principals.

Literacy The Key to Success: Tips for Middle School Parents
https://www.aft.org/sites/default/files/literacytips_middle.pdf
This publication from the American Federation of Teachers aims to provide you with information to explain the standards (or expectations) for what students should know and be able to do in reading, writing, language, speaking and listening. Students will use these literacy skills across subjects; therefore, parents should expect to see evidence that students are reading, writing, speaking and listening, and using appropriate language and vocabulary not only in the language arts classroom but also in content areas, including science, math, history/social studies, technology, foreign language, vocational arts, physical education and the arts. This booklet provides examples of some of the important skills students will be expected to learn and demonstrate, as well as some suggestions on how you can help support your child’s learning at home. We also have provided the links and web addresses to some helpful sites where you can find more information and resources, including videos.
