To all middle school and high school teachers- How often do you give hw? How often do you collect and grade it? I've alway given hw daily and check it as my students are working on their beginning activity, however, I've been giving packets that are due on Fridays for various reasons: 1) it teaches them (or is supposed to teach them) not to procrastinate! 2) I have more time to prompt them and check their beginning activity, instead of marking of hw completion, etc, . Thanks for your help and ideas!!!!!!
