Homework is a constructive tool in the teaching/learning process when geared to the needs and abilities of students. Purposeful assignments not only enhance student achievement, but also develop self-discipline and associated good working habits. As an extension of the classroom, homework must be planned and organized, must be viewed as purposeful to the students, and should be evaluated and returned to students in a timely manner.
Teachers may give homework to students to aid in the students educational development. Homework should be an application or an adaptation of a classroom experience, and should not be assigned for disciplinary purposes.
Homework assignments are usually due the next day. This encourages students to practice their new skills and concepts while the ideas and instructions are still fresh in their minds. We will have some longterm projects this year and the students will be informed as to when those projects are due.
Students will be rquired to list all homework assignments in their agenda for parents to review nightly.
