Digital Audio Package
ANCHOR LEAD: Are kids getting assigned more and more "at home" assignments? And is it really benefiting their education? Brian Osuch has more. (:59) SCRIPT: Lifestyles, I'm Brian Osuch. For parents it's the age old tug of war, getting children to do their homework. But, Assistant Dean at the University of Phoenix says once you get past the initial hurdle… you can get some unique insight into your child's development. CUT: (Norris) Homework actually provides an opportunity for parents to engage with their child. They can see what their strengths and weaknesses might be, any special interests their child might have. SCRIPT: Do children have more homework today than when we were kids? CUT: (Norris) There is actually just more variety of homework. Some homework may look very different than we had as kids, because they're incorporating a lot of technology, they're a lot more long term projects. SCRIPT: Any tips for how parents can help their kids with their homework? CUT: (Norris) Many textbooks now have online textbooks, have quizzes, have PowerPoints where parents can actually be more aware of what their child is learning.
