Homework Hotline: Get Help With Your Homework

Homework Hotline

Homework Hotline is WXXI’s live NY statewide call-in show where students receive help with homework problems right on the air. Designed for students in 4th-12th grades, Homework Hotline provides the tools students need to succeed with homework, and supports academic achievement across a variety of curricular areas. Teachers from Rochester Dial-A-Teacher  take the statewide calls and send them to WXXI studios in Rochester, where host teachers, who are experts in subjects across the curriculum, are standing by ready to help kids work through their homework assignments live on television. The series won a 2014 New York State Broadcasters Association Award of Excellence, Best Locally Produced Program for Children. The program also hosts a companion Web site at homeworkhotline.org, which earned a 2008 Parents’ Choice Award.

Short video across the curriculum air during the show and play in the Homework Hotline video player on the website. Topics include: Going Green, Wonders of Science, Healthy You, Zoophily, Student Book Reviews, NY State of Mine, and Getting Historical. Students that answer the most daily challenges by email or phone are listed in Hall of Fame. Students that answer in the top level each year may get a chance to co-host the show!
