I can't disagree more with the other teacher. As a sixth grade teacher, I believe homework is to practice the lessons from school AND to teach these children responsibility. As a college student, you know the responsibility to write down assignments, work on them, complete them and turn them in. A state report does not sound like a repetitive, boring assignment. That sounds like something a bright student could use to do something very special. I would say someone needs to sit with your child daily right after school and work on the work until it is finished. Then, you need to help you child organize the work so it can be easily found and turned in. If this still doesn't get the job done, one of you needs to make a commitment to continue the organization and walk him to school daily and turn in the work. I've done that to students and believe me, mommy and daddy coming into the classroom is enough to motivate most 10-year-olds to take care of themselves.
