If you have trouble remembering, write down what it is, when it is due, and what you need to do to complete it. Nobody is perfect, and even the people with the best memory will have to do this or something like it at some point.but i cannot remember what it is,
I teach 9th graders, so I'll tell you what I would tell mine. It is YOUR responsibility to succeed, no one elses. If you are not getting things done on time, then it is up to you to change that. Not me, not your parents, not your buddies. You. I know that is harsh sounding, but that is simply the way it is- nothing to like or not like about it. If you want to perform better, you have to be the one to do it. And you can- all you have to do is want to, and then act on what you want.I am a student in year 9, I find homework immpossible to focus on until the last moment.
Actually, most do it to help their students practice (in olden times they were called exercises) with information that is to be learned. Hope that helps you out some.I would like to think teachers are giving homework to help our organisational skills
