After success last year, we are trying out student-driven homework again. With some ideas and modeling, students created 3 tasks that they could complete during the week. They will have Japanese homework another night. Today, the students brainstormed what they might do. They reflected on their strengths, their challenges and their interests. We compiled everything in a Google doc. so they can refer back to it, and as can parents.
Every week, they’ll design homework, with some guidance, on a Friday. Evidence of that homework will be due the following Friday.
At this time of year, PE is a welcome homework task. They have energy. It’s been too hot during the day to do much playing, and they need to run around. Parents, we hope you’ll support your students. Let’s see how it goes. Students, the responsibility is yours.
