At our latest department chair meeting the issue of homework came up, more specifically in the weighting of it in grades. We debated how much it should count toward student grades extensively and by the end of the meeting no ones mind really changed, but we definately gained alot of insight. In your opinion, how much do you value homework in you classes? What and how often do you assign? And how much does it represent of students grades? Depending on the course I count homework as 20-25% because I give homework every day and I value it in all my classes. In math its nightly worksheets/practice work and in History depending on the class are mini-papers/projects, readings, review worksheets, read/notes, and more creative endeavors such as the ISN type assignments.
