Parents and caregivers may also wish to learn about an innovative homwork program called TIPS (Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork), which was developed at the federally funded Center on Families, Communities, Schools, and Children's Learning at John Hopkin's University. TIPS assignments are designed for elementary and middle grade students to do together with adult family members. Hands-on, interactive assignments that draw on real-life situations have been developed in language arts, math, science, and health. Information is available through the Center's Dissemination Office at John Hopkin's University, 3505 North Charles St., Baltimore, Maryland 21218.
