I'm wondering about the feasibility of expecting homework from a transitional life skills classroom. I didn't assign any homework last year. But toward the end of the year, I had a new mom tell me that her son's previous teacher would just send unfinished work home and they would work on it together. (This student had a really hard time working in the classroom though.) This kind of made me wonder about assigning homework. When I was student teaching at a highschool (4-track gen ed classes with high number of IEP students) - I noticed that no homework was assigned. The kids didn't even take text books home unless they asked to borrow them! This came as a total shock to me. I remember back in '85 lugging several books home and doing homework - - and I was in 4-track classes too. Anyway, I guess I assumed that unless you were in 5-track classes or higher, homework was no longer the norm. So I definitely didn't expect it from my kids who were in jr. high but worked at a preschool-2nd grade level. I wondered if any of you assign homework and what kinds you might assign. ??
