Our cup runneth over with FBI-proof, puppy-dog eyes, procrastinated-filled homework excuses.
Identify specific long-term homework benefits that students may be unaware of such as organization, time management and goal setting. In a study of 112 undergraduate chemistry students, the learners report interest in different types of homework.
For example 62% of students are satisfied with online assignments (this format provided immediate feedback and allowed multiple attempts), whereas, 41% are satisfied with traditional paper assignments (this format had no computer printing issues and it is a style most familiar).
Teaching Tip: Ask students to record how long it takes to complete homework assignments for one week.
Use the record to negotiate a daily homework completion goal time.For instance, ask students to ‘create your own method to practice the key terms’. Also, students desire praise for their homework effort.In a study of 180 undergraduate students, almost half of the learners agreed that teacher recognition of ‘doing a good job’ was important to them. it was the weekend.’ We hear a lot of stuff when students don’t do their homework.What we don’t hear, is the research on how to excuse-proof our classrooms for homework.The children must use the LOOK, SAY, COVER, WRITE, CHECK method when doing their spellings. Thanking you for your continued support and co-operation. On Monday they will write out 1(a) three times e.g. If you have any questions about the homework or if there are any problems please don’t hesitate to make an appointment. They will write out these tables every night, again it is important that they learn them for their test on Friday. Every Monday they will be given tables to write and learn for the whole week and these will be tested every Friday.Teaching Tip: Expand homework evaluation to include points for completing the assignment.In addition, include homework feedback into lesson plans.
