Something many of us teachers don’t want to talk about or have to do is consequence our students. I do not have an issue with receiving homework each day, but I do have a problem with the effort put into homework. I have analyzed the situation to see what I can change.
1. I was sending home multiple-choice reading passages. Yes, I realized I was giving him or her the opportunity to bubble in and go with no effort or thought. So, now answers will need to be written.
2. I did not let them know there were consequences to homework issues.
Now, I have started to make calls to parents and now each homework assignment is placed in the grade book.
3. I had rewards for behavior and test, but not for homework. Now I’m going to
Give rewards for homework too!
If you have any ideas that will help solve my homework problem please share I’m open for suggestions.
How do I get them to change?
