Reflection: Homework Inquiring Minds: Generating Research Questions and Leading in the Discovery - Section 4: Closure: Sharing Out Findings


Once we got to the computer lab and students asked a gazillion questions about how to get to various sites, they were well on their way to researching. I noted that most students did not finish the research in class, so they were supposed to finish up for homework.  Well, this was the plan, but completion of homework is a huge issue for some of my classes, so most did not get beyond what they completed in class. This is one of those problems of practice that I will be tackling over the next few weeks, as I believe that homework is non-negotiable.

One of the ways that I plan to tackle the issue of homework is by using for some of the at-home readings. The site keeps track of homework completion, mastery of skills, and time on task. This will help me monitor and intervene when students are not completing or are not understanding the homework.
