    no homework

    I teach 7th grade SS. I used to give homework almost every night - not a lot, but at least 15-20 min. worth. I basically discovered that the only students getting it done were the ones who really didn't need the extra work - they just did it to keep their grade up. After 5 years or so- I decided to re-evaluate the work I was assigning for homework and adjust how class time would be used. Now, I don't give additional written assignments for "homework." My students have a standard homework assignment - review, review, review. I ask that students review their notes and classwork, study and complete unfinished classwork that may be coming due. I feel that if those things are accomplished -it makes my job so much easier.
