    Someone needs to invent a word to replace "homework". "Homework" has such a negative connotation. Plus, homework doesn't need to be completed at home. It is outdated and yucky.

    Here's what I have so far- :haha:

    exclaw-Extended Class work
    eWOC-Extra work outside of class-
    wudfic-Work you didn't finish in class
    eWOOT-Extra Work on your own time

    Let's do this!

    I just call them "assignments." If they don't finish it during class it magically turns into homework when they get home.
