Reflection: Routines and Procedures Theme: The Stone (Day 2) - Section 1: Comprehension Check


Checking in homework can be a time consuming process. I'm sure you know how it goes: Is it missing? Is it incomplete? Why? What are consequences? Are new copies available? What about absence? Oh, and what about checking up on the students who forget yesterday's homework, which is now due today? many details. If you don't plan ahead and have something productive for the class to do while you deal with the homework, it will quickly deteriorate to a free for all. Having them check in with a partner or small is group is great as long you make sure they are aware of the need to stay on topic. Journal writing is another option so is completing a vocabulary or grammar task. Whatever you choose, make sure the students are held accountable for finishing it. This can be in the form of a class review or discussion or the assignment can be turned in and graded.
