What is the value of homework in your class? What purpose does it serve? Do you evaluate it? If so so how do you do so and how much do you weight it. I think Homework is 100% necessary for any college-bound student. 95% of students in my school go to college so I assign homework. If not many students did attend college I probably would not assign it as often as I do. Homework in my class serves as a way for me to introduce or reinforce information. It serves as a reinforcement of a lesson, activity, or notes and other times serves as an introduction to material I will cover the next day. Homework in my class consists of 1) reading and answering questions/terms usually begun in class (and on some assignments a "mini-project", 2) working on long term projects/essays, 3) studying for tests or quizzes, or 4) smaller projects/activities. Homework in my class is not just a practice of their reading, analyzing, or writing skills it is an APPLICATION, reinforcement, or introduction of course content. It is worth 20% (Honors) or 30% of my student's grades along with classwork. Any assignment assigned as an application, reinforcement or review is graded for content and accuracy. Even on homeworks that I give as an intro. to a topic, if the answer is simple (and easily found in the reading) I take off. However, if the questions asks them to think about something we haven't covered in class yet and they at least ATTEMPT to answer the question and support it, I won't take off; even if it's very wrong in my POV. So what are your guys thoughts?
