There is a trend with the schools now where they want the parent to check off that this or that has been done, and many schools are requiring "official" student planners. I feel that planners and other aids are fine and actually useful for some students, but for other students and their parents, they can be an unnecessary annoyance, and as a parent, unless there is a problem with the *real* schoolwork being done, tell the teacher that as a good parent, you are not going to be micromanaging.
I think this book, with its concrete "how-to" approach is a great fit with the John Rosemond book, "Ending the Homework Hassle--which has excellent arguments for why parents should NOT micromanage that you can enlighten your child's teacher with.
I looked at the copyright page here on Amazon, and it does not appear to have been revised any since the original pubication date of 1987, so buying used is just fine too.
The Lee Canter method has been around for 30 years. This has not been updated, but it's a good place to start.
