Homework Help: English

Posted by Henry on Monday, March 12, 2012 at 2:35pm.

I'm pleased you can help me this week, too, Writeacher.

Just a few things.
1) I've just had a parent-teacher meeting today. Some of my new students, whose grammar is very, very low and study very little complained about their bad marks in English. They are in their last year of high school (they learned their grammar in the first two years.)
2) They can even make six grammar mistakes in a sentence and fail to cover the ten lines when writing their paragraphs (they usually write 5 lines).
I spend a lot of time checking their grammar mistakes (as well as their mistakes in the word choice).
3) However, they never do the correction of their tests at home and keep repeating that they had top marks in English the previous years. They don't seem willing to change their minds and never study the vocabulary on literature at home. They are not interested in reading or writing (even in Italian!).
4) I always give them summaries of what dealt with in class, examples of cohesive paragraphs and a lot of fill-in-the-blank activities to let them practise the vocabulary on literature.
Other parents, however, praise my work and keep saying that I'm perfectly able to motivate them! They are enthusiastic about me.
I'm not going to give up hopes. What do you think?
