Please excuse my ignorance, I could not upload the attachment, but here is my work.

Questionnaire #1

1. Homework is a tool for students to be able to review, enrich, and explore concepts that have been already learned in the classroom. 

2. Five benefits of giving homework could be to review a certain topic that requires more practice, to explore further about a topic that the students feel passionate about, an opportunity for teachers to provide individualized homework, a chance to assign family projects that advocate the value of team work, furthermore to assign effective homework that will allow the student to practice and integrate newly learned skills.. Assigning daily reading for homework is a must. 

3. When teachers assign ‘busy work’ instead of effective homework assignments, students and parents feel that learning is not enjoyable or worthwhile and as a result we give a wrong impression about homework and the way we teach. Teachers and parents may catalog homework as a way to keep their kids busy for a while, and sadly just to keep a tradition that gives a good image to the school. 

4. I believe that effective homework assignments can be important if they bring a significant learning experience to the students. 

5. I analyze how the class went, I start making note of students that were less participative and seemed lost during the lesson. By propping questions during the lesson, by reading their faces and by evaluating their work during a lesson I get a good idea of the type of homework each student needs. When it comes to programming homework, my answer would be pretty similar to my answer in question two.

6. There are different ways to motivate students to do their homework. Assigning effective homework seems more appealing to students. A reward system usually works with elementary. I always congratulate the students that did their homework, most kids like to be acknowledged. 

7. When students don’t turn in their homework I talk to them about it in front of the class, if I feel they are honest about their excuse, I ask the class for permission to give the student another chance, if the class agrees and they always do, I ask them to turn it in the following day. A child may fail a teacher once but won’t fail the whole class if there is a compromise.  

8. No, I always try to assign homework according to their needs.









Questionnaire #2

1. Homework is a tool for students to be able to review, enrich, and explore concepts that have been already learned in the classroom. There are three types of homework, extensive, repetition, and preparation.

2. Five benefits of giving homework could be to review a certain topic that requires more practice, to explore further about a topic that the students feel passionate about, an opportunity for teachers to provide individualized homework, a chance to assign family projects that advocate the value of team work, furthermore to assign effective homework that will allow the student to practice and integrate newly learned skills.. Assigning daily reading for homework is a must. 

3. When teachers assign ‘busy work’ instead of effective homework assignments, students and parents feel that learning is not enjoyable or worthwhile and as a result we give a wrong impression about homework and the way we teach. Teachers and parents may catalog homework as a way to keep their kids busy for a while, and sadly just to keep a tradition that gives a good image to the school. 

4. I believe that effective homework assignments can be important if they bring a significant learning experience to the students. 

5. I will analyze how the class went, I will start making note of students that were less participative and seemed lost during the lesson. I will prop questions during the lesson, I will read their faces and I will evaluate their work during a lesson to get a good idea of the type of homework each student needs. When it comes to programming homework, my answer would be pretty similar to my answer in question two.

6. There are different strategies I will use to motivate students to do their homework. I will assign effective homework because it seems more appealing to students. I will implement a reward system. I will congratulate the students that did their homework, because most kids like to be acknowledged. 

7. Students will sign a pledge at the beginning of the year about their comprise with homework, classroom rules and expectations. If students don’t turn in their homework for some reason, I will talk to them about it in front of the class, if I feel they are honest about their excuse, I will ask the class for permission to give the student another chance, if the class agrees, I will ask the student to turn it in the following day. A child may fail a teacher once but won’t fail the whole class if there is a compromise.  
8. No, I will always try to assign homework according to their needs.

The Approach Towards Homework

ISPAC Homework Training Workshop

The Approach Towards Homework

The general experience of our team has been positive in regards to the homework assignments given to the students. Last school year, less than 10% of the students did not accomplish their homework. Our team agreed that the lower grades mainly focus on preparation and extension type of homework. The higher Elementary grades used all three major types of homework which are: repetition, extension and preparation depending on the subject manner. 
When it comes to dealing with the youngest students, the teacher needs to approach them with positive reinforcement. Some of the methods we usually use when it comes to motivating students are: rewards, academic recognition, and extra credit.  Some of the rewards include candy, movies, and or free time. The method of recognition could be writing their name on the board, diplomas, and posting their pictures on the blog. For extra credit teachers have been known for passing out a ‘homework pass’ and extra points on their grades.  However, we have all agreed that it is very important to show them the rubric so that the students can have a better idea of what is expected from them.
According to Ms. Paola de Dios the most effective assignments should be short, sweet, and to the point.  Miss Sara says, “…When you give them the freedom to choose, better results are achieved.”  For example, if the class is learning about the planets, assign them a project that would allow them to research about the planet of their choice. When students are given the freedom to choose, they feel motivated to do their homework and as a result they are also motivated to participate more in class.
Our team agreed that there could be a standard amount of time of assigned homework based on the level, needs, and age of each student in the classroom. Its not about quantity is about the quality. Some of the negative effects of non-thought out effective homework assignments are boredom, exhaustion, low self-esteem, loss of interest and enthusiasm. 
In conclusion, our team strongly believes that by leaving effective homework assignments we are encouraging responsibility, developing security and confidence, building appropriate study habits, time management and organization for our students. As for us, the teachers, to be able to evaluate the acquired knowledge during class.
