I Need Help With My Social Studies Homework
Social Studies is an interest of many – as are other areas of historical research. Because of this, there are many avenues you can take to find additional documentation and help with your homework. Where you look matters – and can determine how successful you will be. Consider a few different methods of finding help and additional resources.
Avenues for Additional Social Studies Help
- Classroom Help: Some classes have a Teacher’s Assistant available for additional help. Consider meeting with the TA to get some clarification or guidance. While they may not be able to one-on-one tutor you, they offer a great amount of experience and can lead you to the right resources for more help.
- Peer Groups: Study groups are a great place to start when you start having trouble. If there isn’t one that is already formed, express your desire to start one. In a larger classroom, ask the professor for a moment in the class to express your interest in finding others to study with. If there is one that is already meeting, attend regularly to get the most benefit.
- Peers: Meeting one-on-one with peers is also helpful. Regardless of your strengths individually, having a study partner will help you both to get more from the classroom studies.
- Tutors: Check with your school to see what tutors are available for social studies assignments. The tutoring contacts can help you decide what types of help might be best for you and can connect you with the appropriate tutor to help you.
- Library: The library at school or at home can offer great books on study skills and the specific studies that you are looking at in school. Consider a search there for more support. You can also ask the librarian for sources of additional help with your studies. Many libraries offer different resources to students in a given area of study.
No matter the type of help you need, or how far you are in class, communication is the first part of getting your study needs met. Your professor, teacher’s assistants, and department contacts can help you only if you express your needs. They are all there to help you and can lead you to the right place – but only if you reach out to them. And don’t worry, you will not be the first (or last!) person to contact them about a particular struggle. Contacting them is key to your success in class and in school. You must be open to help – and look for it when you need it!
