Reflection: Homework Text Structure: Chronological Order Part 2 - Section 2: Lesson


I'd like to reflect a little on the homework task.  

I am not a fan of giving homework for the sake of "homework", and (if you follow me you know that) I rarely send work home with my students for two reasons.  One I expect/hope my students will read their library books nightly. This is a lifelong habit I am hoping to build. 

Two, I know that some of my students have no support at home, some take care of siblings, some have no time due to church and activities that sometimes take them out of town for hours after school, and as a parent I know what this is like for the child/family.

So, my goal is always to allow students ample time to get started in class and always review the work in detail the next day before doing anything with it.  I also walk around and note who is finished and who isn't privately.  This  helps me learn which of my students have trouble after hours and may need a little extra support in the classroom and who is just being lazy.  

While I do hold my students accountable, I do not spend loads of energy on this.  I see it as practice -just as the powerpoint says -not a grade.
