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. It also provides on-demand learning resources and video segments.

Short video across the curriculum air during the show and play in the Homework Hotline video player on the website. Topics include: Science, Health, History, Move to Include, Careers Zoophily, Student Book Reviews, and More. Students that answer the most daily challenges by email or phone are listed in Hall of Fame.

Statewide funding is provided by New York State United Teachers (NYSUT)
