Do you pass back homework once it has been graded? I've been talking with another teacher at my school who doesn't return anything. Once it makes it to her inbox, the kids never see it again unless it's a special project and they request it back. Her reasoning behind this is that most students a) never look at the paper except to see the score at the top, b) she liked to save some work to use in conferences, and c) often give the paper to peers who were absent so that they can copy it. I did hand back papers last year in hopes that students would use them for review and practice. Unfortunately, it seemed that most of the papers ended up in the recycling box or shoved into the bottom of a backpack. What are your opinions on this subject?
