- Students that make below a certain grade must complete homework
- Homework packet due on test day
- Working for a specified amount of time, then reflecting on problems that were easiest, hardest
- Ranking problems from easiest to hardest
- How can we create closure on homework assignments? Reflection?
- If homework doesn't improve learning, then eliminate it.
- How can we be purposeful about the homework we assign?
- We want students to think about the work we do...what other ways can we make them think rather than assigning a bunch of problems?
- I'm thinking about error analysis, contrasting cases, sort problems into categories, reflecting on differences in problem types, explaining steps in a problem in writing, creating different versions of problems, giving a problem with the answer and they show steps, etc.
