Homework Helpers--As Close as Your Computer

By By Shannon Maughan, Studio One Networks

Here are some sites that are bound to help the students in your house get a great start to the school year and help them form strong study habits that will last a lifetime. You might even have some fun exploring these sites yourself.

  • If you are a subscriber to America Online, visit the Homework Help area on the Kids Only channel. You can join a chat with teachers and students, or post a question for a teacher (grades K-6) on a bulletin board and receive and answer back. You also have access to an online thesaurus, dictionary and encyclopedia.
  • #IF($EnableExternalLinks)ajkids.c#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTom#ELSEAsk Jeeves Kids#ENDIF - Type in a question and Jeeves will provide an answer, or suggest other places to search.
  • #IF($EnableExternalLinks)kids.i#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTnfoplease.c#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTom#ELSEFact Monster#ENDIF - The bestselling almanac comes to life on this site. You'll also find help with study skills, a broad list of topics, and a solid search mechanism here.
  • #IF($EnableExternalLinks)school.d#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTiscovery.c#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTom/homeworkhelp/bjpinchbeck#ELSEDiscovery Education#ENDIF - This site, designed by 14-year-old B.#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTJ. Pinchbeck and his dad, is part of the Discovery Channel site. It contains links to just about any place students would want to visit to find information: newspaper sites, news organizations, book and author sites, grammar pointer sites, and more.
  • At #IF($EnableExternalLinks)homeworkcentral.c#COMMENT#ENDCOMMENTom#ELSEK-12#ENDIF students can search by subject and by age group (Kids, Teens, and College & Beyond) to research such topics as current events, history, geography and technology. On the lighter side, visitors will find games and contests, too. Teachers and librarians have plenty to choose from here as well.
