Academic Enrichment in High-Functioning Homework Afterschool Programs by ProQuest


As part of afterschool programs with homework assistance, students are provided with a location and time to complete their homework, as well as instructional assistance. This mixed-method study investigated the program content and delivery processes of seven high-functioning homework programs. Results of this study revealed that in addition to providing students with ample time and resources to complete their homework, these programs also focused on teaching students particular study skills that were perceived as essential across content areas. Furthermore, all the homework programs under study employed such motivational strategies as positive and nurturing environments, and mentoring and reward systems, to encourage students to complete their homework. Finally, communication with school teachers was perceived as a critical element toward homework program success. [PUBLICATION ABSTRACT]
