Social / Emotional / Motivation & Homework

Homework can be impacted by a multitude of factors. Socially-oriented children may place a considerably stronger value on interaction rather than on work productivity. Emotionally, children may be anxious about performance or time required for homework, have low or high energy levels that interfere with perseverance for work, or experience agitation when demands are placed on them. Motivation for doing homework can be impacted by the meaning or value placed on working compared to play.
