DEVELOPING GOOD STUDENT HOMEWORK AND STUDY HABITS

Create an environment that is conducive to doing homework. Children need a consistent work space in their bedroom or another part of the home that is quiet, without distractions, and promotes study.

Schedule ample time for homework.
Establish a household rule that the TV and other electronic distractions stay off during homework time.

Supervise computer and Internet use.
Be available to answer questions and offer assistance, but never do a child's homework for her.

Take steps to help alleviate eye fatigue, neck fatigue and brain fatigue while studying. It may be helpful to close the books for a few minutes, stretch, and take a break periodically when it will not be too disruptive.
If your child is struggling with a particular subject, and you aren't able to help her yourself, a tutor can be a good solution. Talk it over with your child's teacher first.
Some children need help organizing their homework. Checklists, timers, and parental supervision can help overcome homework problems.

If your child is having difficulty focusing on or completing homework, discuss this with your child's teacher, school counselor, or health care provider.

Establish a good sleep routine. Insufficient sleep is associated with lower academic achievement in middle school, high school and college, as well as higher rates of absenteeism and tardiness. The optimal amount of sleep for most adolescents is in the range of 8.5 to 9.5 hours per night.

FOXNEWS-UNIVISION-TELEMUNDO-ABC FAMILY-ABC-NBC-CBS-FOX-AMC-CW-
Telemundo (Spanish pronunciation: [teleňąmundo]) is an American television network that broadcasts in Spanish. The network is the second-largest Spanish-language content producer in the world, and the second-largest Spanish-language network in the United States, behind Univision.

Telemundo reaches 58 percent of Hispanic and Latino American households in 142 markets via over-the-air, cable, and satellite television. An average of 1,035,000 total viewers (aged 2 and older) tuned in for its weekday prime time lineup during 2007. Telemundo is the only Spanish-language network that produces most of its telenovelas. Unlike Univision, which only has Spanish captions, many programs on Telemundo air with closed captions in both Spanish and English.

Telemundo airs its 7-11 p.m. (ET/PT) weekday programs (usually telenovelas) using a form of the Turner Time scheduling strategy used by TBS from 1981 until 1997. That is to say, each program starts a few minutes after its officially scheduled time, typically three or four minutes after the hour. Shows also bleed over into the next time slot. This encourages viewers to stay tuned to Telemundo instead of joining another channel's program in progress.

The 11 p.m. news broadcasts (both those aired by local stations and those aired by the network itself) start at the conventional time, however. The reverse is the case on weekends when football matches are aired, when all programs airing prior to the game are aired five minutes before the hour or half-hour; on weekend days when football matches are not aired, regularly scheduled programming is aired in their conventional timeslots.
