Evidence-based interventions will be presented that target multiple aspects of homework performance. The interventions presented are appropriate for implementation with students in third grade through high school. Attendees will learn how to assess for homework problems and to determine when intervention is necessary. Attendees will learn to implement brief interventions during the school day to improve students' accuracy with homework recording, materials organization, and homework planning abilities. Attendees will also learn how to engage parents in interventions to promote skills generalization. Materials and resources will be provided, which attendees can take back to their schools to facilitate implementation of the intervention strategies.
