It's around that time that grades are starting to come home. Some are great and we're very proud parents, others...not so much.
Some classes have a final exam where what they've done so far is tested again at the end, other classes build on prior knowledge and if you child is
already behind, the remaining portion of the class is going to be very difficult.
Aside from the usual reccomendations such as make up work, staying after for tutoring, hiring a tutor or...repeating the class... there's a website
that can be very helpful. It won't bring up the grade that's already there, but it will help make the next grade that's sent home a little better
and will also help solidify the knowledge that should have been gained... it can also help them get a little "ahead" for the over-achievers.
As an educator, I can attest to it's value. It's one of the best I've seen and it's absolutely free. I suggest it to my students often, both the
High School level and University level. It can even be useful for parents so they can help their child with homework with confidence as well as others
who just want to "brush up" on things or even learn new things.
I cannot give enough praise to what can be gained here and encourage anyone who wishes to "Deny Ignorance" to use this site to build/reinforce their
own knowledge base. Knowledge is something they can never take away.
