Homework Hotline, the live statewide call-in show where students receive help with homework problems right on the air, Monday-Thursday from 5:30-6:00pm on WXXI and PBS stations across New York State. Designed for students in grades 4-12, Homework Hotline provides the tools students need to succeed with homework, and supports academic achievement across a variety of New York State Learning Standards. Teachers from Rochester Dial-A-Teacher take the 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 students work through their homework assignments live on television. The Homework Hotline website supplies a video player, live stream of the show, games and information to help with those homework challenges. Videos are downloadable for classroom use.
