Read and Write in Nepali

Homework

The first section of each assignment is practicing to write the letter. Students are encouraged to practice writing as much as needed. The second section in the homework contains questions about the letter and words presented in each lesson. Thirdly, there is a review section. Here the student will have to remember material from previous lessons. This is designed for 100% retention of all the material. Finally, a bonus section includes some questions and concepts to challenge students to become fully acquainted with reading and writing Nepali.

While following the instructions on reading and writing within the lesson are helpful, we strongly recommend that the student complete the homework assignment that accompanies each lesson. This will solidify the learning and ensure better retention.

Parental involvement is an important aspect of the homework assignments. Since we do not evaluate completed assignments we ask that parents become familiar with lessons and review the student's homework for each lesson. Studies have shown that students whose parents take an active role in their children's education tend to perform better and learn faster. We trust that you as a parent will be actively involved with your kids as they learn to read and write your native language Nepali.

There are many studies which show that parental involvement can play a critical role in assisting a child as they learn. A study from the Harvard Family Research Project has shown that

"parental involvement is associated with higher student achievement outcomes. These findings emerged consistently whether the outcome measures were grades, standardized test scores, or a variety of other measures, including teacher ratings. This trend holds not only for parental involvement overall but for most components of parental involvement that were examined in the meta-analysis. Moreover, the pattern holds not only for the overall student population but for minority students as well. For the overall population of students, on average, the achievement scores of children with highly involved parents was higher than children with less involved parents."

These findings from Harvard are further reinforced from another study from the Michican Department of Education. This study showed that,

"The earlier in a child’s educational process parent involvement begins, the more powerful the effects. The most effective forms of parent involvement are those, which engage parents in working directly with their children on learning activities at home."

Additionally, according to a 2005 article published in the Enterprise Publications,

"Studies show that parental involvement in a child's school and learning is key to a child's success and contributes to fewer behavioral problems, better performance in school and a greater chance of high school graduation."
