dc.description.abstract By the time students reach high school, many parents do not feel equipped to assist their children with homework. However, research shows that even through high school parent involvement in homework can lead to positive student outcomes. The National Network of Partnership Schools at Johns Hopkins University developed a program to strengthen school-home partnerships, by getting parents involved in homework. Teachers Involve Parents in Schoolwork (TIPS) interactive homework is a homework program designed to get parents involved in homework without actually having to teach content. Much of the research on TIPS interactive homework has been focused on the elementary and middle school levels. The purpose of this project is to extend the TIPS program to high school geometry. What are the design features of a TIPS interactive homework program in geometry? In this project three interactive geometry homework assignments are developed based on elements of homework design, the funds of knowledge framework, and the geometric habits of mind framework. The activities align with the developed integrated model. An assessment system to evaluate interactive geometry homework assignments is developed that includes discussion, communicating feedback, and developing a portfolio. Further research is recommended and described in evaluating the effectiveness of such a homework program in high school geometry. This project represents knowledge of the learner and learning principles, learning environment, curriculum and strategies, and assessment. en_US
