These are the ones that work on me, a high school teacher. Know how gullible your teacher is. Some teachers will believe anything, especially new teachers. More experienced teachers are much more difficult to fool and more likely to be bitter and jaded. Experienced teachers have also heard most of the lame excuses you have planned. Know how strict your teacher is.

Does Homework Work? - The Atlantic
Recently, some schools districts in New York, Vermont, Florida, and Pennsylvania decided to ban homework. Homework gives parents a glimpse of what their kids are being taught in the classroom--and armed with that knowledge, says Ridner, parents should become advocates for their child's learning. Introduce kids to educational apps. According to Ridner, it's important to remember that kids have different learning styles; some may be visual learners while others favor written words. Helping your child learn at home allows you to experiment with different learning techniques and determine what works best for your child.
The Cult of Homework
The air was thick with concentration as students like Jasmine Jurado, an eighth grader at the Fox Lane Middle School in Bedford, steadily plowed through assigned readings, math problems and science labs. Jasmine, 14, took a break from an essay about Shakespeare's ''Midsummer Night's Dream,'' to say that her daily average of three hours of homework leaves her anxious and burdened. When I come home, it's all on my back. There's not much time to play.
This happens a lot to other people. No one should have to have this stress and anxiety at such a young age. When they come home, they need to be able to relax and pursue other interests.
