- Your papers have probably always been the reward papers for teachers. Now you’re in a class where every paper is the reward paper! That means you can’t wait until the last minute and slap something together – you won’t be producing the type of material your teacher wants to see.
- Learning to do difficult homework is like learning to walk: you might encounter some bumps and bruises as you deal with the reality of gravity. Anticipate a little struggle and be prepared to overcome it.
- It’s sort of like walking on a treadmill: if you walk very fast for a while, when you slow down to a more normal pace, it seems very easy. Once you have tackled (and conquered) ATYP homework, regular homework is probably not going to be much of an issue. This is great preparation for high school and college.
Homework Tips from ATYP Instructors, Alumni & Parents
ATYP homework is designed to be challenging. First, we want you to be learning from your homework. Second, you’re only with us once a week, so we need you to be doing extra work at home so that we can accomplish everything we need to during class time. Classes are filled with lecture, discussion, and debate – no time for homework here!
